The Mariinnsky Ballet dance Konstantin Sergeyev’s entrancing production of Swan Lake bringing alive the classic tale of good, evil and the redemptive power of love. Based on Petipa and Ivanov’s timeless masterpiece, Tchaikovsky's famous score and the spectacular ensembles and virtuosic solos of its dancing make Swan Lake a favourite on each occasion it is performed.

Inspired by Russian folk tales, Swan Lake is the story of young Prince Siegfried who encounters and falls in love with Odette one night during a hunting expedition. But Odette has been transformed by the evil Von Rothbart's spell into a swan by day, returning to her womanly form only at night at the lakeside. The spell can only be broken if someone who has never loved before swears to love her forever.

But all seems lost when Siegfried is tricked into declaring his love for Von Rothbart's daughter Odile who is disguised by magic as Odette. Siegfried and Odette finally break the power of evil by drowning themselves in the lake to be united in death for eternity.
