Odette, Swan Lake’s enchanted swan princess, is still trying to break her spell

Friday, 1 June 2018

'Due to a swan on the line...'

They get around, our avian friends. The Guardian's dance critic Judith Mackrell has just posted this picture on Twitter and I'm sure she won't mind if we conscript it.

Our Odette as a swan finds herself in some other, comparably tricky situations:

Blown across the North Sea;
crashing through a window;
going to the vet;
attempting to shoplift;
trapped on a rooftop closely resembling King's College Chapel;
attacking a college garden party;
trying to navigate by the moon.

That's just a taster.
