Lyrical music by Tchaikovsky as well as wonderful dance and story development stand out in Swan Lake, making the ballet an immortal masterpiece.
Since the premiere of its revised version by Petipa and Ivanov, Swan Lake has continued to be performed worldwide to the present day and has become a synonym for ballet.
The NNTT has presented revivals of the ballet each season since it gave its first performance in 1998. At every staging of Swan Lake, fresh sensitivities are woven into the work, always moving the audience deeply. In the upcoming season, dancers, including guest dancers from the Maryinsky Theatre, will give lively performances of the work at the beginning of the New Year.

(Odette : S. Zakharova)
One night, Prince Siegfried meets Princess Odette by the lake and falls in love with her. Turned into a swan by the magician Rothbart, the princess is restored to human form only at night. The prince makes up his mind to rescue her and swears eternal love for her. But at the ball, he begs to marry Odile, daughter of the magician and who looks exactly like Odette. He asks Odette's forgiveness and fights against his fate, with the love of the two finally breaking the spell.
