Summary
This picture book introduces young readers to the 'Swan Lake' ballet as vivid photos capture the ballerinas' many steps as they perform the story through dance.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Starring Nina Ananiashvili! The Swan Lake ballet-a universal favorite for children and adults alike--is charmingly brought to life through Nancy Ellison's captivating pictures. Photographed in and around Moscow's spectacular Kuskovo Palace, Swan Lake is a wonderful introduction to the beloved story and ballet as well as an enchanting keepsake for aficionados of the bittersweet tale.

The ballet comes vividly to life on every page: lonely Prince Siegfried, walking along the shore of the palace, happens upon a group of swans transforming into lovely young maidens before his eyes. Siegfried is enchanted with the beauty and grace of the swan queen, Odette. She and her princesses are under the spell of an evil magician, which can only be broken when a prince promises to love her forever. Young readers will follow the story with bated breath as Siegfried promises to marry Odette-but is his love strong enough to break through the magician's spell?
