Drawing on ancient Slavic and Norse mythology where destiny is often born out of the mysterious forces of nature, Swan Lake has become a legend in its own right. Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score is imbued with a deep sense of nostalgia, echoing the composer’s own experience of love as elusive as it was impossible.
In Rudolf Nureyev’s ‘Freudian’ version, conceived for the Paris Opera Ballet in 1984, Prince Siegfried’s role is elevated to that of the hero.
Captured live from Palais Garnier, Paris 8 December 2016.
