Summary
At his 21st birthday celebration, Prince Siegfried is dismayed to learn that now he is of age, his marriage is to be arranged. He goes hunting, and sees beautiful swan wearing a crown. As dusk falls, she is transformed into a beautiful woman. She is Odette, the Swan Queen, and the other swans are other enchanted girls. The spell will be broken if a man, pure in heart, pledges his love to her. Prince Siegfried's mentor, Von Rothbart, is responsible, for he is an evil sorcerer. At a ball, Von Rothbart disguises his daughter Odile as Odette, and the Prince is captivated, and confesses his love. Odette, spying through a window, rushes away in despair, certain that she is doomed to be a swan forever. Will Prince Siegfried betray her, or find some way to free his beloved?
