Go on a magical journey with Odette and Siegfried
The world-class ballet, which is based on a fusion of Russian and German folklore tales, celebrated its premiere in 1877 by the Bolshoi ballet. The tragic love story between a cursed princess and her admiring prince is carried through the four-act ballet by music of master composer Tchaikovsky, which is hauntingly beautiful and creates the perfect basis for telling the story of Odette, the tragic princess heroine who was turned into a swan by the evil sorcerer Rothbart. Prince Siegfried is supposed to marry, but he doesn’t want to and, once out in the woods to go swan hunting, he stumbles upon the beautiful Odette, who transforms back into her human shape at night only. Mesmerised by her beauty, Siegfried promises to help her, but Rothbart, always a step ahead, sends Odile, the Black Swan, to confuse the prince and make him marry her instead. This ballet has everything! From a tragic and enthralling storyline, to some of the best-known and most beloved ballet pieces in history. Or who could forget the Dance of the Little Swans or the famous 32 fouettes (quick turns) by the Black Swan, which require the highest standard of technique and ability. Whether you hope for a happy ending or prefer the tragedy of the original, you may simply have to wait and be surprised, as several ballet companies have adapted the ending to be somewhat happier than evil Rothbart winning. Either way, the ballet is definitely a must for anyone who loves the fine art, and with Swan Lake tickets now available on StubHub, you have the unique chance to see it when it comes to a venue nearby.
