“Boldly dramatic in its chaos and also charmingly magical in its whimsy …” —Blue Curtains Brisbane

Created by Yaron Lifschitz and the Circa Ensemble

Circa reimagines “Swan Lake,” the world’s most romantic ballet, as a circus spectacular—full of the company’s signature physicality, cheeky humor and thoroughly contemporary energy. Be swept away by this tale of swans and hapless princes, s  parkling with quirky touches like a sequinned flipper-wearing duck army and a burlesque black swan. There are sumptuous aerials, jaw-dropping acrobatics and—of course—feathers! Touching, funny and utterly entertaining, “Duck Pond” is a tale of identity and finding your true self.

For more than 85 years, the Artist Series has brought the globe's finest jazz, classical, world music and dance performers to Boulder. Many of these performances sell out; order your tickets today to guarantee the best seats.
