The Mystery and the Magic

The transformation of an Atlanta Ballet lead dancer into a knowing seductress is artfully achieved through performance, costume, and the skill of cosmetic artists, whose makeup effects reveal the danger lurking in the dark beauty of the Black Swan. The Black Swan is one of the most enigmatic figures in all of ballet. Beautiful and seductive, she is a willing pawn in a deadly game of good and evil, life and death, and a moving symbol of life’s dualities: the danger in elegance, the beauty in suffering.
