Odette doesn’t die in this production, but Siegfried drowns at the end.

This became a kind of trend in the 1960s, possibly beginning with Cranko, who said something along the lines of Siegfried is a tragic hero and must be vanquished. Nureyev and Bruhn followed suit.

Luckily the version of the Dutch National Ballet is much better than the Grigorovich version. Especially the fourth act is very nice the Van Dantzig version, definitely my favorite part of the ballet. 

I have been a fan of Smirnova since she graduated from Vaganova, so the news last year she joined the Dutch national ballet, was something i was so happy about. I have been able to have seen her in every big classic (Raymonda, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake) she has danced so far at DNB and she is incredible. 😃
