Take the majesty of a world-class orchestra, stir in your favourite festive tunes and sprinkle over a large pinch of musical magic. The result? Christmas with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra!
Swan Lake is the story of the lovely Princess Odette who has been cast under a spell by the evil sorceress, Rothbart. By day she and her handmaidens are transformed into white swans and by night briefly able to return to their former selves. A young prince by the name of Siegfried learns of Princess Odette’s plight, and they soon fall in love. Conniving and evil through and through Rothbart hatches a plan to trick Siegfried and casts a spell to make him fall in love with his daughter Odile, who by the way is incredibly sassy!
Once the spell wears off Siegfried is mortified and rushes to confess to Odette and seek her forgiveness. With the turn of events, Odette’s fate is sealed, and she shall forever be the Swan Princess. But it doesn’t end there, and Siegfried confronts Rothbart, and an epic battle ensues with Siegfried delivering the final blow to destroy Rothbart and his evil spell. Odette and Siegfried live happily ever after.
