ballet in four actsDVD | Widescreen version.
Jean-Christophe Maillot has reworked Swan Lake with the writer Jean Rouaud to bring a new drama to this pillar of the classic repertoire. This new adaptation, filmed in a special studio setting at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, brings a modern-day relevance to the timeless story of Siegfried and Odette. Designed by leading visual artist Ernest Pignon-Ernest, with costumes by Philippe Guillotel, and danced to a specially conceived and mastered soundtrack of Tchaikovsky's score performed by the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, directed by Leonard Slatkin, the production has been hailed as 'outstanding', while the Jerusalem Post asserted "Swan Lake will never be the same after the tempestous Lac'.
