Quote on Swan Lake

“The poetic core of Swan Lake is the act two pas de deux, that perfect lost-in-the-forest encounter in which Odette and Siegfried unfold the secrets of their hearts to the exquisite dialogue of Tchaikovsky’s cello and violin. It’s this duet that defines the tone of the entire stage, and establishes the audience’s relationship with it.”

– Judith Mackrell, English National Ballet: Swan Lake – review, The Guardian, June 13, 2013
