The original production of Square Dance in 1957 featured a square dance caller. In Balanchine's reworking of his ballet through the years, the caller disappeared, leaving the viewer to focus more on the classical aspect of the choreography while enjoying the extraordinary complexity of the patterns so closely paralleling those found in square dancing.

The evening-length Swan Lake was first produced by the Russian Imperial Ballet in Moscow on February 20, 1877, and it was a total failure. In 1895, Lev Ivanov restaged the second act, which is a complete dramatic entity, and the success of this production led to a revival of the full ballet with choreography by Ivanov and Marius Petipa. It has enjoyed world-wide favor ever since.
The curtain rises on a forest scene. Shimmering in the mist-filled moonlight is a lake guarded by a giant owl, really the sorcerer Von Rotbart in magical guise. Prince Siegfried, his friend Benno, and their hunting party appear in pursuit of a flock of swans. Overcome by the mysterious atmosphere of this place, Prince Siegfried sends his companions on ahead. Seeing something approaching, he rushes to conceal himself behind a tree. Alighting in the glade is a swan who is transformed before his eyes into a beautiful young woman. Startled, she attempts to escape. Calmed by his desire to protect her, she reveals to him that she is Odette, Queen of the Swans, a group of enchanted young maidens who, under the spell of the wicked Von Rotbart, live as women only between midnight and dawn. Hearing this, Prince Siegfried threatens to kill Von Rotbart, who suddenly appears. Fearing for Siegfried's life, Odette intervenes and sadly departs with the sorcerer. Von Rotbart diverts Siegfried's gaze by making all the swan maidens appear. The hunting party returns, quickly preparing to shoot what they think are swans. Odette reappears to protect them and begs the Prince to have his hunters lower their bows, which they do. When he attempts to follow her, she eludes him, fearful of the conse?quences for them both. He finally overtakes her and the development of their love reaches a point where their passion makes them forget the spell. As dawn breaks, Von Rotbart reappears, demanding the parting of the lovers. They struggle against his power but cannot overcome it. Siegfried is left alone gazing at swans flying across the morning sky.
Benjamin Harkarvy wishes to express his gratitude to Miss Elaine Thomas for her assistance in the staging of Swan Lake.
Swan Lake--Act II was funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts.
