Repetto - Lac des Cygnes

Swan Lake

Once upon a time a Princess named Odette 
was under the spell of the Evil Wizard Rothbart.
 He turned her into a swan after the moon set
and the spell could only be broken by a vow of everlasting love.

The Paris Opera Ballet performed Rudolph Nureyev's production of 
Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake earlier this year. The Repetto window 
pays homage to the genius of the composer and the choreographer.

The large window of the Repetto flagship store on Rue de la Paix
will always amaze you with its beauty and creativity.  
My favorites are those which feature a ballet such as this one.

I like the contrast between spheres, that resemble the spins of a ballerina and the stillness of the repetto, as origin of any movement. Your comment is very nice and useful. Thank you Genie!!
