Barbie of Swan Lake
Barbie™ magically comes to life in her third animated movie, Barbie™ of Swan Lake. Based on the brilliant music of Tchaikovsky and the beloved fairy tale, the movie stars Barbie™ as Odette, the young baker’s daughter who follows a unicorn into an Enchanted Forest. While there, she is transformed into a swan by Rothbart, an evil wizard intent on defeating the Fairy Queen and taking over the Forest. The Fairy Queen is able to counter Rothbart’s spell so that Odette retains her human form by night but mystically transforms into a swan by day. Odette learns that, even though she feels she is the wrong person for the task, it is her destiny to save the Enchanted Forest from Rothbart. But how can a young girl – armed with only her courage, honesty and intelligence – accomplish this, all while the handsome Prince Daniel is falling in love with her? Barbie™ of Swan Lake combines fantasy, ballet and Tchaikovsky’s unforgettable music as performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. Peter Martins, Ballet Master in Chief of the New York City Ballet, choreographs the wondrous dance scenes of this spectacular ballet in a way never experienced before. Barbie™ of Swan Lake shows that each of us is braver than we think.
