It is hard to believe that Piotr Illytch Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, Swan Lake, composed in 1877 for the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, was a failure, given the melodic force of his score. It was only twenty years later, when Tchaikovsky was already dead, that this ballet was revived on stage with a choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanon. Almost a century later, Rudolf Nureyev reshuffled the cards with his own choreographic reading of the impossible love affair between Prince Siegfried and Odette, the young woman transformed into a swan by the sorcerer, Rothbart. In his 1984 version for the Paris Opera Ballet, he gives greater psychological depth to the prince, torn between his duty and his dreams, and illuminates Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with profound hopelessness.
