The St Petersburg Ballet Theatre Company is here in Melbourne currently performing Swan Lake at the Princess Theatre.

This will be the first time in sixty-five years that the Princess Theatre hosts Swan Lake and what better way to go about it than with the St Petersburg Ballet Theatre Company, who are highly respected around the world for their incredible performances.

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.
