A very different take on Swan Lake

A new interpretation of Tchaikovsky's ballet "Swan Lake" will be performed tonight at The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis.

In Michael Keegan-Dolan's re-imagining of the ballet, the lake is black plastic, the prince is suicidal, the swans wear convent frocks, and the set is made of concrete and steel.

If you go, be advised that audience members in the first few rows can expect to have feathers blown on them.
