The content of Swan Lake is a very simple fairy tale. A young prince's son is to marry in order to preserve the dynasty. However, Prince Siegfried unfortunately does not fall in love with one of the planned young ladies, but with an enchanting foreign girl, to whom he swears eternal fidelity. The beautiful Odette, however, has an evil spell and can only take human form at night for a few hours. The magician then lets his own daughter appear in the shape of Odette at a feast in the castle to deceive the prince. The blinded prince breaks his promise of loyalty unintentionally.
