Swan Lake by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Swan Lake was originally composed over two centuries ago in 1875 by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, one of the legendary Russian composers of the classical repertoire. It tells a spellbinding tale of love, magic and tragedy through a chronicle of how a Prince Siegfried falls in love with a beautiful girl, Odette by the lake while he was out for a hunt on his birthday. Unfortunately, an evil sorcerer came in between their growing love due to a curse that is casted on Odette.

The first performance of Swan Lake took place in 1877 at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, Russia and continues to make its mark until today.
