My favourite is The Tin Soldier.
My favourite is Swan Lake. -I love the music for this.

It tells the story of Odette, a princess, turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer's curse.

Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake for me, too. The first time I saw it was at the Royal Albert Hall in London. I had never been to a ballet before and I remember being surprised to hear the dancers' feet sliding over the stage.
'Swan Lake'! Will see it every time, no matter what Ballet Company performing it! Going to see 'Imperial Russian Ballet's version this September!

Best version ever seen was Matthew Bourne's, with the male dancers' bare chested & footed, with fluffy 'feathered tights'.

If you saw movie 'Billy Elliott', the final scene, when Billy leaps onto stage, that was actually Sadler's Wells' Adam Cooper, & he was wearing the 'feathery' tights of which I speak!
