This lush adaptation of the classic fairy tale transports audiences into the medieval, courtly world of Lady Swanwhite and the man she wasn’t supposed to love. Manipulated by an evil-spirited stepmother who possesses magical powers, Lady Swanwhite finds herself dishonored, disgraced and powerfully in love with a young Prince. To save her honor and her love, Swanwhite must make herself vulnerable to the very woman who hopes to destroy her.

Lady Swanwhite will be sung in English.
