Natalia Makarova, one of the most important interpreters of the classical ballet repertoire in the twentieth century, has also had great success as a producer.

Makarova's staging of Swan Lake is based on the original choreography by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with additional choreography by the late Sir Frederick Ashton.

Evelyn Hart and Peter Schaufuss are stunning as Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried in this studio recording. Leanne Benjamin is a treat a one of the 'pas de quatres'.

Makarova's innovative interpretation presents the work as a story of perfect and eternal love.

The stage design by Günther Schneider-Siemssen does not use scenery to communicate changes of place and mood but back projections (blue laser to indicate water for example), which are extremely effective for creating a mysterious, magical atmosphere.
