Lac des Cygnes


10 May 2023

A masterpiece of classical ballet, Swan Lake is back with a new tour in France and Europe.

In 2023, rediscover the love affair of a prince and a swan princess in a new show, with a different production each year.
This ballet plunges us into the crazy story of Prince Siegfried and Princess Odette. The latter is unfortunately trapped by the famous spell of the magician Rothbart: she turns into a swan by day and becomes a woman again at night. Only the promise of eternal love can free her from this spell. Siegfried promises Odette to marry him at the ball given in her honour. Will they escape the tricks of Rothbart and his daughter Odile? Will the Prince be able to save his bride?
Created in 1875 by the Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky, it was in 1895 with the revival by choreographer Marius Petipa that Swan Lake became the greatest classical success of all time.
Between Pas de deux, romantic duets and the Dance of the Little Swans, the dancers, accompanied by an orchestra, will interpret this masterly work with elegance.
A symbol of romantic ballet, Swan Lake continues to enchant children and adults alike.
