The National Ballet of Canada | Greta Hodgkinson’s Extraordinary Winter Season
Final Swan Lake
Debut in A Month in the Country
Tatiana in Onegin
This Winter Season will feature the extraordinary talents of Principal Dancer Greta Hodgkinson with her final Swan Lake, her debut as Natalia in A Month in the Country and her return to a favorite role, Tatiana in Onegin.
Ms. Hodgkinson will perform Swan Lake, choreographed by James Kudelka, for the last time on March 15, 2014 at 7:30 pm. The role of Odette/Odile was created especially for her in 1999 and is a role on which she has left an indelible mark.
Ms. Hodgkinson is debuting in A Month in the Country on February 26 at 7:30 pm and dancing Tatiana in Onegin March 21 at 7:30 pm & 23 at 2:00 pm. Earlier this season she performed the world premiere of Being and Nothingness (Part 1) to great acclaim. The solo was created for her by Principal Dancer Guillaume Côté.
“It is bitter sweet to say good bye to Swan Lake,” said Ms. Hodgkinson, “however the anticipation of dancing such incredible roles as Natalia in A Month in the Country and Tatiana in Onegin fills my heart. My career continues to hold wonderful challenges for me and I am really excited by all that I see ahead.”
