The Swan Lake ballet show was a hit with 51 performances last year on the stage of the National Aquatic Center, known as the Water Cube. This year, the show revisits the stage after both the venue and the show were upgraded.

The prince of the devils fell down from the sky, taking the princess from the stage and throwing her into the water. Suddenly, the princess turned into a swan. The upgraded version will fully utilize the space of the Water Cube and create a panoramic view for the audience. The performance area now includes a stage, diving platform, and the pool itself.

In addition, the upgraded version will integrate classic and water ballet, as well as diving, ballroom dancing, jujitsu, acrobatics, and aerial tricks. This mixture of art and skill blend to create an imaginative fairy tale world for the audience to enjoy. The show will last until September 26th and has a total of 40 performances in the Water Cube.
