About

At the palace, the royal family and their guests are gathered for Prince Siegfried’s birthday celebrations. In a majestic ceremony, Siegfried is made a knight and young girls try to attract his attention, as he must choose a wife during the ball. Overcome by the sudden awareness of his future responsibilities, he escapes into the night and meets a strange flock of swans by a magical lake.

White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse on her. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterised by elegance, style and harmony.

With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, ’Swan Lake’ depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and is honed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet. This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a must.

The cast includes the famed ballerina Svetlana Zakharova, one of the most beautiful Odette/Odiles of our time, Denis Rodkin, Artemy Belyakov and of course, the Bolshoi.
