Prince Siegfried is out hunting one night when he happens upon a flock of graceful swans. When one of them turns into a beautiful woman named Odette, the Prince is utterly smitten—but Odette explains that she’s fallen under an evil spell cast by the dreaded Rothbart, which keeps her in swan form from dawn to dusk.
