About the Swan Lake Ballet

Tchaikovsky’s impassioned score, virtuostic choreography and stunning fairytale plot meet to create a ballet that has stood the test of time for generations. It tells the story of Siegfried, a young prince who falls in love with Princess Odette. However, Odette and her companions are struck down by a terrible curse: they are destined to transform into swans, and can only return to human form by night. True love may lift the spell, but the evil sorcerer, Baron von Rothbart, will do anything to stop romance from saving the day.

First seen in Moscow in 1877, the ballet rose above its initial failure and has become one of the most beloved shows in the genre, with audiences young and old returning again and again to delight in its tale of treachery, betrayal, and romance.
