Swan Lake

To celebrate the coming-of-age of Prince Siegfried, the countess organises a ball in his honour. Her son should marry a suitable wife before assuming his rightful place on the throne. The evening before the planned celebrations, however, the prince discovers the meaning of true love. While out hunting swans with his best friend, Benno, the two young men observe how the birds are transformed into swan maidens. Siegfried falls in love with one of these, the beautiful Odette. He intends to break the curse with which the evil wizard Rotbart has bound the maiden to himself by declaring an oath of eternal love. The next evening the wizard foils Siegfried’s plan. The young couple’s love seems doomed; but in the end Rotbart fails to destroy the bond of true love, and cannot separate those who are destined for one another.
