Restaging A SMALLER SWAN LAKE

Claire Parsons Co. is looking forward to re-staging a newer version of the classic A SMALLER SWAN LAKE. Instead of the gracious swans we might be expecting from this classical ballet, other figures appear on stage, ready to spread their wings, dance on a silver lake and find the best steps for birds in formation. An audience and critical success, A SMALLER SWAN LAKE is a delightful mix of dance, talking and circus in a commissioned work for The Royal Dramatic Theater and a family performance suitable to all from 4 years. A SMALLER SWAN LAKE premiered in November 2018 and is now finally returning to perform once again. Available for touring fall 2021 and onwards.
