Swan Lake is synonymous with classical ballet. It is a timeless love story of Princess Odette transformed into a white swan during the day and Prince Siegfried who falls in love with her. The ballet is packed with dazzling highlights such as mystical Dances of Swans in the moonlight in Act II and dramatic grand pas de deux in Act III widely known as the 'Black Swan pas de deux' in which Odile, the daughter of an evil witch, seduces Prince Siegfried. A passionate sequence of national dances in Act III including Spanish dance, Neapolitan dance, Hungarian czardas and Polish dance is arguably a signature scene of this monumental, dramatic ballet.

The Tokyo Ballet premiered an important version by Vladimir Burmeister in 2016, which received an enormous acclaim. It was Yukari Saito's one of the first projects as Artistic Director. Natalia Burmeister, the daughter of the great choreographer who attended The Tokyo Ballet's premiere said "it brought me back the memories of its world premiere". Two years later, it was performed again with newly designed costumes. On this occasion, the sets will be renewed by the Russian designer Elena Kinkulskaya to bring The Tokyo Ballet's Swan Lake project to perfection.
