What significance do the black swans in Act IV hold? I believe it to be really stupid seeing as the Black Swan in Act III represents evil. What are the choreographers' reasons for putting them in?

They're supposed to be cygnets. All-black would seem to be an arbitrary choice, as cygnets are actually black, buff and grey with a sort of camouflage pattern, like many young waterbirds. I think we took this one 'round the bend in a previous thread.

If you have set your preferences other than the default* (and may therefore have more than 15 posts per page), answers begin with Marga's post, #19: http://ballettalk.in...ndpost&p=159120

*Members with dial-up connections may find this cuts down the time necessary for loading extra pages :yawn: for the same number of posts.
