Waking from hibernation in the early spring, the perky Frog and the worrywart Toad celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special.

•Saturday, May 7, 1:00 p.m., $95/orchestra (reg. $110 + fees). Purchase by April 7

Boston Opera House, Boston, MA

From the very first note of Tchaikovsky's romantic and ageless score, audiences are transported into a world where enchanted swans rise from a misty lake and a love-struck prince is deceived by a cruel and dangerous beauty. Virtuoso dancing abounds, from the mesmerizing corps of elegant swans, the colorful national dances, and incredible athleticism and grace of Odile's fouettés (whip turns), to the heartbreaking finale when Siegfried's unintentional betrayal and Odette's broken heart dooms the swans to their tragic fate. Hailed as "luminous" by The Wall Street Journal. See it again or for the first time-but do not miss this limited engagement as Swan Lake won't return to the stage for several years.
