This fairy tale tells the story of a prince who falls in love with a beautiful swan princess, Odette. She is enchanted by an evil magician and can only become human if someone truly loves her. But the magician wants to prevent this and sends his daughter, who looks exactly like the swan princess, to the prince's ball. Can the prince recognise the real swan princess?

Swan Lake is a beautiful performance with music by Tchaikovsky. He uses different melodies to represent the characters and their feelings. For example, you'll hear a sad and graceful theme when Odette introduces herself to the prince, a cheerful and lively waltz when the prince celebrates his birthday and a tense and menacing motif when the magician plots his schemes. With enchanting puppetry, animations, set design and acting, we'll bring this wonderful fairy tale to life.
