Alicia Alonso 1955

Alicia Alonso plays Odile in Swan Lake (1955).

Odile is the daughter of Von Rothbart, who is willing to follow in her father's footsteps. She only appears in the third act, dressed in black and magically disguised as Odette in order to help her father trick Siegfried into breaking his vow of love to Odette. In some productions, Odile is known as the Black Swan and, rather than magically disguised as her, is Odette's evil twin or double; an example of this type of portrayal is seen in the production by the Bolshoi Ballet. There are also some productions where Odette and Odile are danced by two different ballerinas.
