Swan Lake is one of the world's best loved ballets, performed by the most prestigious ballet companies around the globe, the American Ballet Theatre.

Set against Tchaikovsky's beautiful score, the ballet tells the story of a beautiful princess - Odette - who is turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's spell, only to return to her human form at night. One day she encounters a prince, Prince Siegfried, and the two fall madly in love. Will he be able to break the sorcerer's spell?

Swan Lake is timeless story of good and evil, and love and tragedy that has enchanted audiences since 1877.
