See Swan Lake Like Never Before

Les Ballets de Monte Carlo's LAC, which is a retelling of Swan Lake, will be be performed at The Mahalia Jackson Theater Friday, March 1 at 6:15 p.m. The New Orleans Ballet Association (NOBA), known in the city for their many incredible performances, is hosting this special behind-the-scenes performance of the ballet.

The show is a reimagination of Swan Lake, with all the same witchcraft and whimsy as the original performance. The curtains will be opened at 7 p.m. before the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. for viewers to watch the dancers warm up and prepare for the show. The rest of the show will follow suit. Viewers will watch the sets change, stagehands do their work, and more behind-the-scenes secrets will be revealed.

Attendees are encouraged to dress up in their best Swan Lake black and white attire, for which feathers are, of course, encouraged. Upon arrival, guests may enjoy an open bar and food. During intermission, hors d'oeuvres and cocktails will be served. After the curtain closes, guests can celebrate with champagne, dessert, and music.

Tickets are currently on sale for this all-inclusive night of ballet for $350 and a limited amount of spots are available.
