One day, on one of his hunting trips, Prince Siegfried sees a band of swans resting peacefully in the lake. One particular swan captures his attention, because it’s wearing a crown and stares at him just like a human. Siegfried is mesmerized and follows the swan all the way to some ruins, where the pretty swan suddenly transforms into a beautiful lady. The beautiful lady turns out to be Princess Odette, who was put under a cruel spell by the evil wizard Rothbart; and it is this spell that makes her turn into a swan every day, regaining her true human form only when the moon shines upon the lake. The only thing that can break the spell is the unconditional love of a man for her, which Siegfried is eager to give, but things aren’t as easy as they seem.
