Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet and is widely considered to be one of the greatest classical ballets of all time; it has all the essential ingredients of romance and beauty to captivate audiences for more than 100 years. A gallant prince meets a swan who turns into a beautiful young woman. The woman, Odette explains she is a princess who has come under the spell of an evil sorcerer. The spell can only be broken if a virgin prince swears eternal fidelity to her, if not she will remain a swan forever. However, a cruel plot and a case of mistaken identity threaten to ruin their happy ending.
