A fresh new production of this drama of young love
An ageless masterwork graced by Tchaikovsky's lyrical score and by both glorious choreography and dramatic structure. This is a classic among classics, revived almost every season at the New National Theatre, but this time the sets and costume have been completely redone, and the production itself revised under the direction of Maki Asami. The glistening fantasy world of Swan Lake is reborn, with renewed emotional power.


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. However at the ball, he begs to marry Odile, daughter of the magician, who is identical to Odette. He asks Odette's forgiveness and fights against his fate, and finally the love of the two breaks the spell.
