"I'm not a big fan of the ballet, but 'Sorrows of the Swan' grabbed my attention within the first few minutes. Beautifully choreographed and directed and brought to life by a stunning cast, the hour-long performance went by way too fast. Even for a non-ballet goer, I followed the story with ease - they brought me on a very unexpected and delightful journey."
Wayne Gasser, The Gasser Group

Lake of Sorrows by E Thomalen, fuses classical music, ballet and rhyming text, which adds a different element to the NY Summerfest.

Edward W. Hardy who has composed the original music, is on violin. As strains blend to harmony, we are led in and out of Tchaikovsky's melodic score.

Based on the ballet Swan Lake, we learn the beginning of the tale as Rothbart (Joseph Rose), sells his soul to the devil and loses his reflection (Derek Nicoletto). Now with power he longs for beauty and love. His grounds are coveted and he has created swans by cursing innocent young woman.
