Drawing on ancient Slavic and Norse mythology where destiny is often born out of the mysterious forces of nature, Swan Lake has become a legend in its own right. Tchaikovsky's first ballet score is imbued with a deep sense of nostalgia, echoing the composer's own experience of love as elusive as it was impossible.
