Swan Lake Act 2 (followed by Baltimore Ballet School Recital)
Featuring CEM CATBAS, VALERIIA IVLIEVA, NORBERT NIREWICZ, RUSLAN AMRAYEV, and Baltimore Ballet Company Members and School Students.
Odette is an enchanted princess under a spell of the evil sorcerer Von Rothbart; she has been transformed into a swan by day and can only regain her human form at night. She has many companions under the same spell, who have made her their queen, hence her title "The Swan Queen." She is forced to live by a lake that was magically formed by her grieving mother's tears when Rothbart kidnapped her. The only way for the spell to be broken is by the power of eternal love between Odette and a young man who will r...emain faitthfull to her, for if the vow of eternal love is broken, she will remain a swan forever.
One day, the young Prince Siegfried ventures upon the lake while out hunting, and sees Odette transform from her swan form back into her human form. He is so struck by her beauty that he falls in love with her at once, and when she tells him her story, he promises to love her forever and invites her to a Royal Ball at his casttle where he may choose her as his bride. They spend the night dancing together, falling more and more in love with each other until dawn breaks and Odette is forced to return to the lake as a swan, leaving Siegfried alone.
