A lavish production of the world’s best-loved dance production.

A moonlit lake provides the scene where a grieving prince witnesses the transformation of a swan into a beautiful princess. Trapped by an evil sorcerer’s curse, the beautiful princess is compelled to spend her days in the form of a bird, returning only to her human form at night. Only the power of true love can break the spell; can Prince Siegfried save her or will he succumb to the magician Rothbart’s malevolent curse? Be sure to find out in this beautiful production of this much-loved ballet classic.
