Classical ballet’s most powerful tale of love, treachery and forgiveness. Bringing together
Tchaikovsky’s sensational score with the incredible imagination of choreographer Liam Scarlett and
designer John Macfarlane, Swan Lake on the big screen will be an exceptional way to experience this
ultimate ballet classic.

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into
a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing
her to regain her human form only at night. Von Rothbart, arbiter of Odette’s curse, tricks the Prince
into declaring his love for the identical Odile and thus breaking his vow to Odette. Doomed to remain
a swan forever, Odette has but one way to break the sorcerer’s spell.
