Swan Lake Performed Atop (What Else?) Swan Boats

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

If you think you've seen it all, we ask: have you ever seen Swan Lake performed atop a swan boat in the Public Garden?

Unless you had the chance to catch the Boston Ballet do just that—over 30 years ago—then odds are, the answer is no. Which is why if you're free at 3:30 this Thursday afternoon, you'll want to head to the Public Garden to catch an encore performance and photo shoot. The timing coincides with the company's preseason—and if you're vying to catch artistic director Mikko Nissinen's production on stage, you can buy tickets here.—Karyn Polewaczyk
