Tchaikovsky's enduring balletic tale of Prince Siegfried and the Swan Queen is performed here by the Royal Ballet with leads Makarova and Dowell. Filmed at Covent Garden.
Description by Kultur Films:
It is difficult to believe today that Swan Lake was a failure on its production in 1877 and was not successful until the Petipa/Ivanov version of 1895. Today it is regarded as one of the greatest works in the art of ballet. The magic of Tchaikovsky's musical soundtrack underplays this gala performance.
