NH Magazine has selected Northeastern Ballet Theatre’s production of Swan Lake as the Best Summer Ballet of 2022.
NBT will perform Swan Lake at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord on Aug. 5 and 6 at 7 p.m. These will be NBT’s first ever performances at the CCA.
NBT Principal Dancer and New Hampshire native Iona Darling will perform the lead role of Odette/Odile, with special guest artist Yuval Cohen of the Philadelphia Ballet performing the role of Siegfried.
Tickets for the CCA performances are available at the CCA box office and online at ccanh.com/show/swan-lake.
Led by founder and artistic director Edra Toth, former Prima Ballerina of the Boston Ballet, the family-friendly production features dancers from New Hampshire and the Greater Boston Area, hand-crafted costumes, and state-of-the-art digital backgrounds.
NH Magazine calls the performance “intimate and dynamic,” and one that “will rival any ballet troupe anywhere.”
The final performance of Swan Lake will take place Aug. 11 at 7 p.m. at the Kingswood Arts Center in Wolfeboro. NBT Principal Dancers Naomi Sawyer of Plaistow and Assaf Benchetrit, Associate Professor of Theatre and Dance at UNH, will perform the lead roles.
Tickets for the Wolfeboro performance are available online at NBT’s website at northeasternballet.org and in-person at the KAC on the day of the show.
