Swan Lake is the ballet's ballet, and has always been an audience-favorite. This production combines the beautiful music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky with the ingenious choreography of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. The enchantment of Swan Lake attracts Prince Siegfried, a dreamer, like a magnet. Odile, looking exactly like the beautiful swan princess Odette, lusts for the young prince. A struggle; the injury of beloved Odette; the victory over evil, which is only an illusion... This interpretation of Swan Lake by the LNO ballet troupe has fascinated audiences with its meticulous re-creation of every detail of the classic ballet – the choreography of the dances, the language of movement, the relationships between characters, and the decorations and costumes.
