Karen Flamenco Presents Swan Lake!

Don’t miss your chance to see Swan Lake performed in a brand new way!

Watch the classic tale of Odette and Odile unfold on stage with all the power and passion of flamenco.

This is the story of a beautiful enchanted princess, a prince, a wicked sorcerer and his daughter, all entangled together in a tale of magic, evil spells, love and jealousy.

Odette, the swan princess, has fallen prey to the magic of the wicked sorcerer, Von Rothbart. On the day of his birthday celebrations, the prince is hunting with friends when he gets lost and discovers Odette, Enchanted Lake and the wicked powers of Von Rothbart. Odette reveals that the only way to break the spell is with a vow of everlasting love from one who is pure and noble. The two fall deeply in love and the Prince returns to the palace, happy that he has found his one true love and with hopes of breaking the spell, but Von Rothbart has other plans…

At the costume ball, Von Rothbart appears with his daughter Odile, disguised as Odette. The Prince, fooled by Von Rothbart’s magic, declares his love to the wrong woman… What will happen to Odette and the Prince?

Join us to see a twist in the classic tale as Karen Flamenco leads her dancers into a world of myth, magic and beauty in Swan Lake!

Tickets now available from the Karen Flamenco studio!
