Kean Stage to Present Moscow Festival Ballet's SWAN LAKE, 3/15
The Moscow Festival Ballet will perform Swan Lake at Kean University's Wilkins Theatre on Saturday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m. Set to the music of Tchaikovsky, Swan Lake is a romantic tale of true love and forgiveness taken from Russian folklore and German legend.
