10. An unbreakable spell
Siegfried flees the castle and runs to the lake to find Odette. After a passionate apology, Odette forgives him, but as the pair dance, Rothbart appears and tears them apart. The lovers realise that they can’t break the spell because of Siegfried’s earlier pledge to marry Odile. Pictured: The Bolshoi rehearsing Swan Lake, 2008.
