On Stage: A New “Swan”

Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre debuted its new Peter Farmer Swan Lake this past weekend (click on Post-Gazette) and will continue next week with performances that will also feature Alexandra Kochis with Luca Sbrizzi and one of Julia Erickson’s final performances before she retires from the company. Interestingly, she is paired with Alexander Silva, who was scheduled to perform Siegfried in 2015, but succumbed to injury. He gets a second chance on Friday with Julia, certainly the sentimental performance to anticipate next week.
