Synopsis

Inspired by a performance of The Dying Swan - where the white swan with its majestic movements is preparing to die - by Svetlana Zakharova because of the fineness of her arms, the black swan rises up with totally opposed movements and style. Fast, strong and aggressive movements which blend with the music showing the principal characteristics expressed by Julius Reisinger and his Swan Lake.
