When the curtain rises on "Swan Lake" Friday, some in the audience might be new to the Colorado Ballet.  Artistic Director Gil Boggs expects some new interest in the ballet from people who saw "Black Swan", the backstage-ballet movie.  Boggs talks with CPR's Mike Lamp about the upcoming season and the ballet's financial situation.  He says the company's finances are improving after the shock of 2008, with rising ticket sales and a higher artistic profile.
