One of the main challenges of Swan Lake is the dual role of Odette/Odile for the Principal dancer, the White Swan and the Black Swan.
Odette, The White Swan, is innocent, pure and honest, whereas Odile, as the Black Swan, is manipulative, dishonest and erotic. It’s sharp, dark shadowy corners against a gently beguiling beauty.
