2021-22 Season Events

Saturday, February 19, 2022: SWAN LAKE
The wicked sorcerer von Rothbart has transformed Odette and her friends into swans; only at night can they return to their human form. Will Prince Siegfried be able to save Odette or will she be doomed to remain a swan forever? Join us as we journey to the enchanted lakeside where Prince Siegfried and Odette’s heartbreaking love story unfolds. Host Megan Fairchild and the artists of NYCB will provide a unique look at Swan Lake, one of the most famous ballets of all time, in this presentation perfectly suited for families.

Saturday, May 28, 2022: A MAGICAL MIDSUMMER

In this fun-filled, hour-long program you’ll see excerpts from this enchanting ballet and hear from the artists who perform it.
