Swan Lake story guide



ACT I  |  ACT II  |  ACT III  |  ACT IV




The lakeside
Odette returns to the swan-maidens, distraught and wishing to drown herself in the water of the lake while she is still in human form. Realising Siegfried is following her, von Rothbart creates a storm in a vain attempt to stop him. Siegfried arrives and begs Odette's forgiveness. Sadly, she tells him that she forgives him but nothing can change the fact that his vow was broken. Odette and Siegfried decide they cannot live apart and will die together. Odette throws herself into the lake and von Rothbart is thwarted in his attempt to stop Siegfried following her. Dawn breaks. The lovers are united in death and eternal love.
