Today’s featured event:

Watch Oklahoma City Ballet’s production of the classic “Swan Lake” at 8 p.m. today and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N Walker.

It is the first time in the Oklahoma City Ballet’s 41-year history that it will present a fully-staged production of Tchaikovsky’s complete “Swan Lake.” Company principals Yui Sato and Miki Kawamura will alternate with Houston Ballet guest artists Nao Kusuzaki and Christopher Coomer in the roles of Odile/Odette and Prince Siegfried.

“The story of ‘Swan Lake’ is all about transformation,” company artistic director Robert Mills told The Oklahoman Fine Arts Editor Rick Rogers. “The Oklahoma City Ballet has transformed over the past five years into a company capable of honoring the high art and transcendent power of this important ballet. Everyone who loves the performing arts should see ‘Swan Lake’ at least once in their lifetime. The time is now for ballet in Oklahoma City.”
