BALLET | "Swan Lake" 

This weekend, Ballet Prestige will present Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," perhaps one of the most renowned classical ballets in history. While the exact origins of the folk story aren't entirely known, the tale of princess Odette's transformation into a swan by a mysterious sorcerer has been passed down for centuries. Tchaikovsky's ballet premiered in 1877. Ballet Prestige is bringing this world-famous story to life with some help from two esteemed members of Estonia's Vanemuine Ballet Theater: Brandon Alexander and Tarasina Masi. Alexander has worked with the Rochester City Ballet in addition to performing with the Houston Ballet, while Masi has performed as a soloist in the USA Ballet.

"Swan Lake" runs Friday, June 27, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 28, at 2 p.m. at Webster Schroeder High School, 875 Ridge Road, Webster. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for children 12 and under. balletprestigerochester.com.
