Principal Dancers Sofiane Sylve and Carlo Di Lanno discuss their experiences dancing Swan Lake, at San Francisco Ballet and at other companies, and share their thoughts on the nuances and challenges of the roles of Odette/Odile and Prince Siegfried in this iconic ballet. They also discuss what it’s like to dance principal roles at young ages, very early in their careers, and their ideas about ballet’s role in educating audiences about the potential of this art form.
