Burnaby dancers will be in the spotlight for Coastal City Ballet’s upcoming Swan Lake.
The production is onstage at the Vancouver Playhouse on Saturday, May 18 at 7:30 p.m., and again at the Bell Performing Arts Centre in Surrey on Saturday, June 15 at 7:30 p.m.
It includes five dancers from Burnaby: Hinano Furukawa, dancing as a little swan and in the pas de trois; Igor Gomes, in the pas de trois and Italian dance; Alexandre Lobo, in the mazurka; Rene Tsuchiya as a swan; and Erisa Ichikawa as a swan and in the mazurka.
They join a cast of emerging Canadian and international dancers in the full-length ballet production, featuring choreography by Irene Schneider and led by artistic director Katrina Bois.
“Swan Lake is one of the only ballets that you can see again and again. Whether it’s your first time or your hundredth, the experience is truly magical,” Bois said in a press release. “Schneider’s Swan Lake was designed to be seen over and over again because you find little details in it each time that make it exciting and fresh.”
