"Swan Lake" is a timeless love story that mixes magic, tragedy and romance. The most loved and mesmerizing of classical ballets, "Swan Lake" was Tchaikovsky's first. It was composed in 1875 and over 100 years later it remains a favourite with ballet companies regularly performing it throughout the world.

Premiere in February 27, 1877, at the Bolshoi Theater, in Moscow

Length 140 minutes with an interval


Often considered the epitome of the classical ballets, Swan Lake is a tale of love, betrayal, and triumph of the good over the evil. Filled with romance and beauty, this ballet enchants audiences for over a century.

The choreography requires high technical skills and a tremendous execution on the representation of characters in this story, particularly the clash of characters in figurative purity of the White Swan and intrigue, duplicitous, of the Black Swan, requiring virtuosity and dramatic talent by the Principal dancer especially in the two Grand Pas de Deux, ballets in Scene II and Scene III. Another moment of climax is the delightful Dance of the Little Swans.

The prestige and notoriety achieved by timeless Swan Lake are motivated by the inspiring music of Pyotr Tchaikovsky, but also inventive and expressive choreography by Marius Petipa that, linking the human body with the movements of a swan, reveals the genius of its potential and choreographic artistic creativity. Pyotr Tchaikovsky composed this work of the transcendent, the Suite Op.20 perpetuates the name of the composer. The success of his compositions resulted from the ability to express their feelings through musical idiom, creating intense and emotive melodies.

Swan Lake tells the story of Odette, a young woman cursed by the sorcerer Von Rothbart, condemned her to the figure of a swan during the day and human overnight. Only a declaration of true love can break her free of the curse.

A true poetic romantic theme, where good triumphs evil. This classic production features lavish scenery, gorgeous costumes and a corps de ballet outstanding, led by two of the International Dance Stars.


Scene one
The terrace of castle is filled with joy and merriment - Prince Siegfried is celebrating his coming of age, his courtiers congratulate him while his mischievous jester entertains the assembles guests. The servants announce the arrival of his mother the queen, she presents her son with a crossbow for the hunt. The queen reminds her son that at tomorrow coming of age ball he will have to choose a bride. Night is fast approaching and the guests take leave, Siegfried is finally alone with his thoughts and premonitions of what the future may bring. In the twilight a flock of swans pass over and he rushes to the lake.

Scene two
At the lake in the heart of the forest, the swans having stepped ashore turn into beautiful young girls Siegfried about to draw his crossbow stops fascinated by their beauty. Odette the swan princess is startled by Siegfrieds presence, he assures her no harm will come to her. Odette tells him of her terrible plight. Tells him of her high birth and how she has fallen under the spell of be a swan and only in the hours of darkness to assume her human form. She tells him she is bound for eternity by the spell unless an unblemished youth swears eternal fidelity and marries her. Siegfried realizes his destiny has changed. Day is breaking, the swans are again swimming on the lake, Odette bids a sad farewell, Siegfried is left desolate.

Scene three
The coming of age ball commences at the castle. The young noblewoman whom the Queen has chosen as prospective brides are presented to Prince Siegfried, he shows no interest thinking only of Odette. The entertainment and merrymaking continue until a fanfare announces the arrival of more guests. Rothbart disguised as a knight sweeps in with his daughter Odille, Siegfried is dazzled by her beauty and her resemblance to Odette, swears his love and fidelity... Rothbart the sorcerer triumphs in his deception.
Siegfried horrified at what he has done rushes from the ball and into the night.

Scene four

Siegfried fleeing from the ball arrives at the shore begging Odette‘s forgiveness and telling of his undying love for her.

The rising sun gives birth to new life, happiness and love.
