This classic and timeless ballet is the tragic love story of Odette, a beautiful princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse, who is to swim in a lake filled with tears. Only in the hours of darkness may she assume her human guise, but her spell can only be broken by a prince who swears his eternal love and devotion to her. Swan Lake is one of the greatest works in ballet history, set to the music of Tchaikovsky.
