The Ballet Nacional de Cuba presents Swan Lake in the 12th Meet in Beijing Arts Festival. The troupe's prima ballerina and founder Alicia Alonso stages her new version of the three-act ballet. Her dance combines academic technique and the personification of a woman/swan in dance, and is influenced by Cuban folk dance. The plot includes transformations, magic spells and monstrous curses, as well as the power of love.

7:30 pm, April 28-May 1. Opera House, National Center for the Performing Arts, east of Tian'anmen Square, 010-6655-0000.
