About

The timeless masterpiece of classical ballet, Swan Lake, returns in 2024.

In 2024, rediscover the romance between a prince and a swan princess in this brand-new French and European tour, with lavish sets and sparkling costumes in this latest production.

This ballet immerses us in the fairy tale of Prince Siegfried and Princess Odette. Odette has fallen victim to the famous spell of the magician Rothbart: she turns into a swan during the day and becomes a woman again at night. Only the promise of eternal love can free her from this bewitchment. Siegfried promises Odette to marry her at the ball given in his honor. 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 Ilyich Tchaikovsky, it was in 1895, with its revival by choreographer Marius Petipa that Swan Lake became the greatest classical success of all time.

Between “Pas de deux,” romantic duets, and “Dance des Petits Cygnes,” the dancers will interpret this masterful work with elegance, accompanied by a renowned orchestra.

Symbol of romantic ballet, Swan Lake continues to enchant children and adults alike.
