Summary
Dancer Frank Augustyn and others discuss various aspects of the ballet Swan lake, beginning with its evolution from a failure at its first performance to its current status as a ballet classic. Drawing on their own performing experiences, the dancers discuss how the story can be made believable and compelling. They note changes in the choreography over time, particularly the increased importance of the male dancer. Advances in technical facility, exemplified by the thirty-two fouettés executed in the role of Odile by Pierina Legnani, are contrasted to the ballet's emphasis upon dramatic characterization, especially in the dual role of Odette/Odile. Performance excerpts (choreography by Yuri Grigorovich after Aleksandr Gorski, Lev Ivanov, and Marius Petipa) illustrate the discussion.
