NYCB principal dancer Sara Mearns has become known as one of America’s foremost interpreters of the dual role of Odette-Odile in Swan Lake. She explores this classic role live alongside Georgian ballerina Nina Ananiashvili—a former principal dancer with Bolshoi Ballet and ABT, among others, and widely known as “one of the twelve greatest ballerinas of all time” (Daily Telegraph).
