The role of Odette is just one of many iconic characters Mireille Favarel danced in her storied career as a Milwaukee Ballet Company dancer. Now, as associate director of Milwaukee Ballet II, she stages the traditional presentation of Act II of Swan Lake that will delight ballet purists and enchant new comers.
