Swan Lake

Between magic and poetry

The Opera Ballet in "Swan Lake"

By Ann Ray


From its creation at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1877 to Rudolf Nureyev's version for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1984, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake has undergone various interpretations whilst losing none of its splendour.
