The princess, Odette, tells the prince that she has come under the spell of an evil sorcerer Von Rothbart. During the day she must be a swan and swim in a lake of tears. At night she is allowed to be a human again. The spell can only be broken if a prince swears eternal love to her. She tells Prince Siegfried, that if he refuses her she must remain a swan forever. Siegfried falls madly in love with Odette. However, through a spell by the evil sorcerer, he accidentally proposes to Von Rothbart's daughter Odile at the costume ball, mistaking her for Odette. Odette is heart broken. Prince Siegfried makes a passionate apology to her, she forgives him and the pair reaffirm their love for eternity. This breaks Von Rothbart's spell over the swan maidens, causing him to lose his power over them and he dies.
