The New Ballet of San Jose is to debut “Swan Lake” and “My Very First Ballet: Swan Lake” at California Theatre over Mother’s Day weekend, dancing to Tchaikovsky’s score as performed by the Palo Alto Philharmonic, conducted by Thomas Shoebotham. “’Swan Lake’ is a classic — a dramatic, sweeping story of love and betrayal,” said Dalia Rawson, executive director of The New Ballet. “It is a special ballet, one that will appeal to today’s audience, and more specifically, a family audience, as an introduction to ballet.”.
When considering which production The New Ballet would perform this spring, Rawson said she wanted a ballet that would pink ballet shoes leather resonate with the entire community and instill a greater, or even a new, love of dance, She said “Swan Lake” felt like the natural choice, and she set about creating an elegant, accessible interpretation that showcases the dancers’ talents while highlighting contemporary themes, “We’ve tweaked the story ever so slightly to fit our interpretation,” Rawson said, “but the real highlights are there — the classic moments like the dance of the little swans and the black swan pas de deux that are so familiar, Our version is fast-paced, The story telling is real, we just took out all of the filler.”..
To create her streamlined version, Rawson focused her story on the character of Prince Siegfried, who, constrained by honor and duty, is being forced to marry despite not being in love. While he is often portrayed as aloof and unfeeling, the prince is more nuanced and sympathetic in The New Ballet’s production. “This is a coming-of-age story, if you look at it from his perspective,” said Rawson. “Here’s a young person, faced with circumstances he didn’t choose, trying to find his own path. For him it ends tragically, but I think the message is to be true to yourself and true to those you love.”.
To help flesh out his character, Rawson looked to his friends, who are usually minor, unnamed characters, She created Lady Lorraine and Lady Elizabeth, and rechristened Benno as Sir Michael Bena (all names of benefactors and friends of The New Ballet), She said the friends provide deeper insight into the prince’s character and help to make him feel more relatable and well-rounded to a modern audience, “We have the right dancers for this production,” she said, “We have this lovely cast to bring the drama to life, From a personal standpoint, I’ve never had so much fun in my life, You can really feel the excitement pink ballet shoes leather in the studio.”..
“Swan Lake” features Brennan Wall as both Odette and Odile. Rawson described Wall as “a remarkable dancer.

Ryan Preciado will perform the roll of Prince Siegfried and Jonah Corrall will dance the part of the evil magician, Von Rothbart. Rawson said Corrall “has never been happier. He walks around with the biggest grin on his face — when he’s not in character, of course.”.
“My Very First Ballet: Swan Lake” is a performance for children, designed for a pre-school audience and their families, While this version lacks the more tragic elements of the story, it is still an exploration of love and innocence, Rawson said she hopes people will see the ballets with their families and make an outing of it, The premium ticket option offers access to the VIP lounge, the garden atrium at the California Theatre, where patrons pink ballet shoes leather can take pictures with the dancers and share in champagne and dessert..
