When the beautiful Odette spurns the advances of the sorcerer von Rothbart, he delivers a curse that transforms her into a white swan. Prince Siegfried goes hunting in the forest and spies Odette as a lovely swan. He discovers her secret and they fall in love, but von Rothbart and his daughter Odile (the black swan) have other plans.
Tchaikovsky’s dramatic score sets the tone for this iconic classical ballet, featuring lavish sets and costumes. This year’s production features guest artist Brian Simcoe, Principal Dancer of Oregon Ballet Theatre.
