This summer, your family can join the Swan Princess and her Prince as you experience the magic of Swan Lake at the historic Polk Theatre in Lakeland. There is no better place to see Swan Lake than in a city nicknamed Swan City!
Swan Lake is a timeless love story that mixes magic, tragedy, and romance into four acts. It features Prince Siegfried and a lovely swan princess named Odette. Under the spell of a sorcerer, Odette spends her days as a swan swimming on a lake of tears and her nights in her beautiful human form. Discover how the spell gets broken and how prince Siegfried falls in love with Odette, betrays her trust but still beats evil and saves their love.
Many attraction closures and event postponements have been announced beginning September 27 due to Hurricane Ian. We are editing our calendar and articles if we receive notice of event changes, but please be sure to check directly with organizers to confirm any events or activities from September 27 - October 2. A link is provided at the bottom of every event on our calendar and in all articles.
Swan Lake will be performed by the students and principal dancers from Russian Ballet Orlando, a premier ballet school in Central Florida. Adults and children alike will enjoy this performance featuring a favorite classic story, talented dancers, as well as kids from ages 5 and up. Girls and boys will love seeing other children dancing on the stage.
Russian Ballet Orlando performs 20-30 shows each year across Florida. They wowed local audiences in December with two sold-out performances of The Nutcracker, and again this spring with another favorite – Cinderella. Now they are back with a performance of Swan Lake!
This article and all giveaways are sponsored by Russian Ballet Orlando.

More about Russian Ballet Orlando
Russian Ballet Orlando is a Pre-Professional Performing Arts company. They train students in the Russian “Vaganova” method, with many who go on to become professional dancers. Their ballet students have the opportunity to perform on stage throughout the year, providing real-world training experiences with a focus only on ballet and point.
Russian Ballet Orlando has a unique Polk County connection… in the fall of 1996, Vadim Fedotov, Principal Dancer of the National Theater of Ukraine, came to the US temporarily and accepted an offer to choreograph a 30 minute Nutcracker on Ice at Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven, Florida. He was offered a resident position with Orlando Ballet and went on to open Russian Ballet Orlando in 2000. His daughter, Katerina Fedotova, is now Artistic Director and President. It all started with The Nutcracker here in Polk County!
Visit the Russian Ballet Orlando website to learn more about their unique history or their dance programs. Future shows at the Polk Theatre include Mermaid in June and Swan Lake in July, and we look forward to enjoying Russian Ballet Orlando performances here in Lakeland.
