* ''{{Webcomic/Roommates}}'' has an arc (''Such Stuff...'') which is best described as ''Swan Lake'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''{{Film/Inception}}''. As expected it's a massive MindScrew which gets a lot easier on the brain if you know the basic storyline of this ballet. It also has a villain who introduces herself as "Odile" and a dream sequence that discusses the RevisedEnding controversy.

* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Odette wears white. Odile wears black. This was not the case in early versions of the ballet, where Odile wore gaudy colors.

''[[color:#191970: Swan Lake]]'' (Russian: ''Лебединое Озеро, Lebedinoye Ozero'') is a ballet, by Music/PyotrIlyichTchaikovsky , composed 1875-1876. The scenario, initially in four acts, by Vladimir Begichev and Vasiliy Geltser was fashioned from Russian folk tales as well as an ancient German legend, which tells the story of Odette, a girl turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse. The choreographer of the original production was Julius Reisinger. The ballet received its premiere on February 27, 1877, at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow as ''Le lac des cygnes'' ("The Lake of the Swans"), French being the language of the Imperial Russian court. Although it is presented in many different versions, most ballet companies base their stagings both choreographically and musically on the 1895 revival of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov, first staged for the Imperial Ballet on January 15, 1895, at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. For this revival, Tchaikovsky's score was revised by the St. Petersburg Imperial Theatre's chief conductor and composer Riccardo Drigo.

In Russian media SwanLake is somewhat of a trope in its own right. If there is any scene involving ballet or ballet will be shown on TV it will always be SwanLake. Always. Specifically "the dance of the little swans" scene.

* ''VideoGame/{{Loom}}'', a 1990 PC adventure game, used SwanLake for the [[PublicDomainSoundtrack entire sound track.]]
* ''Anime/KaleidoStar'' used SwanLake as the basis for a circus show in the second season. It turns out to be a LighterAndSofter adaptation that has [[spoiler: Sora as a bright Odette [[SparedByTheAdaptation who lives through all]], Leon as a DefrostingIceKing Siegfried who manages to play out the ''Angelic Maneuvre'' with Sora, and May as an {{Anti Villain}}ous Odile who [[HeelFaceTurn ultimately is saved too]].]]

Also notable for having additional meaning for Russians because during the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=August_Coup 1991 crisis]], all normal television programs were shut down and all channels showed ''SwanLake'' instead.
