Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake: A beginner's guide
Rothbart, in disguise, arrives at the ball to the sound of trumpets accompanied by his own daughter Odile who Rothbart has cast a spell on to make her look identical to Odette. The one difference is that she wears black, Odile white. Pictured: Russian ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev and Natalia Makarova of the Kirov Ballet, 1970.
