The Bolshoi Theatre Production of
starring Maya Plisetskaya & Nicolai Fadeyechev

Swan Lake tells the timeless tale of redemption through love. It Is probably the best-known of all the classical ballets, and, for the prima ballerina who dances the dual role of Odette and Odile, the supreme test of the dancer's craft.

Maya Plisetskaya's melting lyricism and superlative technique make her one of the greatest exponents of the dual role since the ballet's first introduction over a certury ago. Tchaikovsky's score, the first in his triumvirate of great ballets, is the perfect complement to the imaginative choreography that sets Swan Lake apart from anything that had preceded or followed it. This production, filmed live at the Bolshoi theatre, captures a great ballerina in her prime in an eternal classic.
