The white swans and their fragile queen Odette, who with her ethereal spell bewitches the melancholic prince, or the festive ball scenes, during which the entire court falls into a frenzy over the seductive Odile – it is images like these that have created the myth of Swan Lake.

This ballet tells the story of Prince Siegfried and the spellbound Princess Odette, who is trapped in the figure of a swan. In the staging by Staatsballett Berlin the famous swan scenes are retained with their archaic impact, but the constellation of characters around the unhappy prince is slightly modified to allow a psychological turn. Prince Siegfried’s mother, whose love for her son in slightly unhinged, holds his fate entirely in her hands. Siegfried’s jealous friend Benno and the character of the influential Prime Minister Rotbart are set into a new light.

Peter I. Tchaikovsky’s incomparable score contributes distinctively to the unique atmosphere that is inseparably connected to the audience’s timeless perception of Swan Lake.

There is a free introduction in German for the audience at the performance venue 45 minutes before each performance, except opening nights, guest performances, and special events.
