Receive 30% off selected tickets to Richmond Ballet‘s performance of Swan Lake Feb 8-10

Enter the promo code SWAN online at ETIX.com or provide the code over the phone when calling 1-800-514-3849 (ETIX). Discount applies to price levels 2-5 only for Swan Lake. Expires after February 1, 2013. Discount is not available on previously purchased tickets and cannot be combined with other offers.

For many, Swan Lake defines the very art of ballet: the lush Tchaikovsky score, the moonlit images of impossible grace, the story of magic, mystery and transformation. In the tradition of ballet passed down from choreographer to dancer, generation to generation, Richmond Ballet’s production of Swan Lake shares lineage with the definitive 1895 staging by the legendary Marius Petipa. This production was set on the company by Nicholas “Papa” Beriozoff, who learned this version directly from a student of Petipa.

Swan Lake, choreographed by Nicholas Beriozoff with music by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky, will be at the Carpenter Theatre at Richmond CenterStage February 8-10, 2013.
