Widely acclaimed in its debut performance A Swan Lake that will entice you every time
The ageless masterpiece “Swan Lake” is a staple at NNTT that had been performed since May 1998, when we invited Natalia Dudinskaya of the Mariinsky Theatre to stage the performance of Konstantin Sergeyev’s version. It has since been revised and re-choreographed by Maki Asami, and this latter version premiered in November 2006, and this popular reinterpretation will be revived for this occasion. Svetlana Zakharova has been invited as this season’s guest dancer, and please don’t miss Odette-Odile performed by three different NNTT ballerinas.


One night, Prince Siegfried meets Princess Odette by the lake and falls in love with her. Turned into a swan by the evil 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.
