Nashville Ballet presents the world’s best-known classical ballet,SwanLake. Featuring a full cast of dancers, beautiful sets and choreography, the ballet is accompanied by The Nashville Symphony, performing Tchaikovsky’s score.

SwanLake is the story of a princess trapped in the body of a swan. Prince Siegfried falls in love with Princess Odette after watching her beautiful moonlit dance. A spell cast by an evil sorcerer turns Odette into a swan each morning, and this spell can only be broken if a prince pledges eternal love to the princess. Discover how Prince Siegfried is tricked into proclaiming his love for Odette’s evil twin, the sorcerer’s own daughter Odile.

For more than a century, SwanLake has engaged audiences and inspired new generations of dancers, who are challenged by the ballet’s technical demands and the ability to express all the human emotions...from hope to despair, terror to tenderness, and melancholy to ecstasy. 

Single tickets to Nashville Ballet’s SwanLake performance range in price from $19 to $57. Group tickets of 10 or more receive a 20 percent discount off the single ticket price. To purchase group tickets, call Meredith Benning at 615.297.2966, ext. 10.

All single tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster at 615.255.ARTS,, or any Ticketmaster outlet. Tickets may also be purchased in person at the TPAC box office downtown (no Ticketmaster fees) or the Davis-Kidd Booksellers in Green Hills.

Nashville Ballet is funded in part from grants made available through the Metropolitan Nashville Arts Commission, the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, as well as the Ingram Charitable Trust Foundation.

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
