Boston Ballet: Swan Lake Photo Shoots Connect Past And Present

“Swan Lake Photo Shoot”

Boston Ballet premieres Mikko Nissinen’s Swan Lake tonight with performances continuing through November 16.

The above behind-the-scenes video features the work of photographer Eric Levin with ballerinas Ashley Ellis and Lia Cirio (I think) featured on promo materials. The ballerinas are interviewed here.

Below, a related video shares a long-standing tradition with ballerinas from previous productions holding court at Boston Swan Boats for a fun photo opp and marketing boost.
