Perhaps the most popular ballet video ever released, this version of Tchaikovsky’s beloved work "Swan Lake" (Schwanensee / Le Lac des cygnes) stars one of the most famous classical dance partnerships of all time, Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn. Nureyev choreographed this production for the Vienna State Opera Ballet. No ballet lover can afford to be without this Video, which finds two icons of 20th-century dance in magnificent form. Ballet authority John Lanchbery, former music director of the Sadler’s Wells and Royal Ballet companies, as well as of American Ballet Theatre and Australian Ballet, conducts the Vienna Symphony Orchestra in Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score.
