Swan Lake Ballet

A uniquely enchanting romance crystallized in an iconic and captivating ballet."

Swan Lake is one of the best-loved classical ballets of all time. Based on a Russian folk tale, it is a moving story of a beautiful maiden who becomes free of a curse that turns her into a swan.

My daughter and my youngest sister were mesmerized watching the ballet performance of Tchaikosvsky’s Swan Lake at CCP Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo. They were delighted by the movement especially by the swans clad in white tutus gliding in the stage. They were so in sync and inspiring, and the performance seems as effortless as possible.

It's a story that fought mistaken identities and stood against a sorcerer. The Swan princess forgives the prince for being deceived by the trickery of the sorcerer. It's about faith and believing that love always prevails. A realization that love really changes everything.

Philippine Ballet Theatre's Swan Lake features guest artist Linnar Looris of the Houston Ballet as Prince Siegfried and PBT's own Tiffany Mangulabnan as Odette/Odile.


Cameras are not allowed inside the theatre. I just took pictures after the show using my cellphone :)
