ABOUT DANCE [2] SWAN LAKE [opera Bastille]

Paris L'Opera Bastille reeditioned Rudolph Nureyev's Lac des Cygnes [Swan Lake] on tchaikovsky's magnificent score. This clip gives a nice overview of the final scene, where the sorcerer / black swan comes for Odette, the princess turned swan.

Swan Lake, based on an old Russian fairytale has seen quite some choreographic developments since it's 19th century premier.
