Tchaikovsky's classic ballet is based on an old Russian folktale and tells the story of a princess named Odette who is transformed into a swan by the curse of evil sorcerer Von Rothbart. Odette is forced to live by a lake that was created from the tears of her grieving mother and can only regain her human form at night. But one evening, the young Prince Siegfried sees Odette transform from her swan form into her former self and after a night at the lake together, he vows to love Odette for eternity.
First premiered at Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre in 1877, this spectacle has gone on to become arguably the world's most famous ballet. It is a timeless tale of the struggle between good and evil, and tells how the power of love cannot be dimmed by death.
For this adaptation the orchestra is led by Piotr Czajkowski, with Anna Wujkowska choreographing the dancers. Tickets are priced from zł.47.
