What is the story of Swan Lake?

Swan Lake is one of the most beloved and enduring ballets of all time; it tells the enchanting story of Princess Odette, who is cursed by the evil Rothbart to spend her days as a swan, and only true love can break the curse. Prince Siegfried is captivated by Odette's beauty, poise and grace, he promises his love and loyalty to her. However, Rothbart deceives Siegfried by presenting his daughter, Odile, as Odette, leading to tragic consequences.
