THIS IS A HD BROADCAST. A ballet of ultimate beauty and a score of unparalleled perfection born at the Bolshoi in 1877. In the dual role of white swan Odette and rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova exudes vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery, alongside the powerful and emotional Siegfried, Denis Rodkin. This is classical ballet at its finest.
