Prince Siegfried follows an enchanting flock of swans to a clearing by a lake, where four of the little cygnets begin to dance. The most beautiful swan transforms into Princess Odette, who tells him that she has been cursed to turn into a swan by day and return to her natural form at night by the evil sorcerer. As the prince and Odette dance, they begin to fall in love. But the prince is tricked into proposing to the sorcerer's daughter Odile and returns to the lake to battle him. Will the prince be reunited with his swan princess?
