Dashing, but pressured Prince Siegfried is urged by his mother to marry soon and bids that he chooses a spouse the following night, at the royal ball. Frustrated, he goes hunting with his friends, and after becoming separated, is stunned when one of the swans he marked for prey, transforms into a beautiful maiden. He falls deeply in love, but she is terrified of him. Upon winning his trust, she divulges that she and her companions are victims of an evil spell, cast by a sorcerer Von Rothbart, who traps them on the lake and in their Swan like form, only becoming human for the night. The only way to break this spell is for one who has never loved to love her, The Swan Queen.
