Listen to the synopsis
In few words:
A fairytale ballet set to Tchaikovsky’s scintillating score, Swan Lake was created in 1877 for the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow and later restaged by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Almost a hundred years later, Rudolf Nureyev brought his own interpretation of the ballet to the Paris Opera in 1984. The encounter between a dreamy prince and a bird-woman continues to fascinate with its elegant choreography and poetic story. Rudolf Nureyev’s striking psychological insight magnifies the love story between Siegfried and Odette, the white swan bullied by the sorcerer Rothbart and Odile, the black swan. Ezio Frigerio designed the set as an enclosed space, a mental space in which the prince gives free rein to his fantasies.
Odette: Young princess transformed into a swan by Rothbart, only eternal love can free her.
Odile: Rothbart’s daughter, she takes the appearance of Odette to trick Siegfried.
Rothbart: A huge bird of prey, he transforms young women into swans and prevents Siegfried and Odette’s union.
Wolfgang: The Prince’s tutor, he mysteriously disappears when Rothbart appears.
