At moonlight on the banks of a mysterious lake, Prince Siegfried meets the bewitched swanwoman
Odette. Completely spellbound by her beauty, he swears his faithfulness to her.
However, the Prince realizes too late that Fate has another plan for him….
A ballet of ultimate beauty and a score of unparalleled perfection born at the Bolshoi in 1877.
In the dual role of white swan Odette and her rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana
Zakharova exudes both vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery,
alongside the powerful and emotional Siegfried, Denis Rodkin. Including breathtaking scenes
with the Bolshoi’s corps de ballet, this is classical ballet at its finest.
