    Default Swan Lake

    This masterpiece deserves a thread:

    (Sorry for happy ending lovers, but originally the end was with Odette and Siegfried dying together and rising to the heavens-pretty tragic, isn't it?)

    Pick your favorite ending.

    I've seen NYCB, ABT, Mariinsky and (on DVD) Royal Ballet.

    This was one of the first ballets whose music I greatly enjoyed. I prefer the F Horn entrances at the end to be very loud. The recordings led by Rozhdestvensky and by Feidler do bring this out well

    Actually, this is a favorite of mine from childhood (I'm 29 in three weeks).

    Got a text from a friend who's coming to NYC next week and wanted to see ballet. So we'll be at American Ballet Theatre's "Swan Lake" next Tuesday.
