The love of Prince Siegfried and his Swan Queen, Odette, is imperiled by sinister, supernatural forces in one of ballet’s most famous stories. Choreographer Yuri Grigorovich’s retelling and Tchaikovsky’s lyrical music underline the magic and drama of this timeless work.

“The Bolshoi’s sweet side. The dancers’ athleticism is thrilling as is the inspiring synchronization and elegant upper-body positioning of the whole cast, from the corps de ballet to principals.”
