The Bolshoi Ballets 'Swan Lake'.

The Bolshoi Ballet's Swan Lake encores at Palace Cineplex this Sunday.

At moonlight on the banks of a mysterious lake, Prince Siegfried meets the bewitched swan-woman Odette. Completely spellbound by her beauty, he swears his faithfulness to her. However, the Prince realises too late that fate has another plan for him.

Swan Lake is a ballet of ultimate beauty and a score of unparalleled perfection, born at the Bolshoi in 1877. In the dual role of white swan Odette, and her rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova exudes both vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery, alongside the powerful and emotional Siegfried, Denis Rodkin. Including breathtaking scenes with the Bolshoi's corps de ballet, this is classical ballet at its finest.
