Swan Song

Swan Song (2010) is a farewell ballet. The ballet is dedicated to former dancer Stefan Żeromski, who ended his dance career with this piece. As a muse of León and Lightfoot he was of great artistic significance. Philip Glass created a new composition specially for this ballet: Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra. Glass has been one of León and Lightfoot’s sources of inspiration for many years now. Swan Song is the first choreography León and Lightfoot made on music composed expressly for them.

World premiere
