Misty Copeland to make ‘Swan Lake’ debut with Washington Ballet

Misty Copeland, a popular soloist with American Ballet Theatre who has become a leader in diversity for ballet, will make her American debut in “Swan Lake” with the Washington Ballet in April, the company announced Wednesday.

Copeland, who is African American, will dance the leading role of Odette/Odile at the Kennedy Center, with the Washington Ballet’s Brooklyn Mack as her partner and love interest, Prince Siegfried. Mack is also African American, and the two will effectively shatter the all-White stereotype of “Swan Lake,” the most traditional of ballets
