Jewels of music and dance in the setting of the third act of Swan Lake: Prince Siegfried's birthday celebrations take place in the palace hall, a veritable tourbillon of dances, from Czardas to Spanish, Neapolitan and Mazurka, all culminating in the famous pas de deux of the 'Black Swan' with the company's talented solo dancers. Another homage to Tchaikovsky appears as if by magic: Aurora and her four princes in the immortal 'Rose Adagio', which combines both dreamy sweetness and technical strength and is one of the most difficult choreographic passages in 'Sleeping Beauty', alongside the pas de deux of the 'Blue Bird' and the pas de deux from the second act of 'The Nutcracker'.
