Abstract:

At his 21st birthday celebration, Prince Siegfried is dismayed to learn that now he is of age, his marriage is to be arranged. He goes hunting, and sees beautiful swan wearing a crown. As dusk falls, she is transformed into a beautiful woman. She is Odette, the Swan Queen, and the other swans are other enchanted girls. The spell will be broken if a man, pure in heart, pledges his love to her. Prince Siegfried's mentor, Von Rothbart, is responsible, for he is an evil sorcerer. At a ball, Von Rothbart disguises his daughter Odile as Odette, and the Prince is captivated, and confesses his love. Odette, spying through a window, rushes away in despair, certain that she is doomed to be a swan forever. Will Prince Siegfried betray her, or find some way to free his beloved?
