At the time of the third production, in , Hansen introduced further changes, and added a new dance in Act III for the ballerina Lydia Geiten— Cosmopolitan , to music by Cesar Pugni, which had no relevance whatsoever to the ballet. This was the first production of a Russian ballet outside its native land, and it was repeated at the National Theatre a further seven times before the end of April . Although the version of the ballet widely promulgated in the 20th century originated after the composer's death, it still played an important part in popularising Tchaikovsky's music and revealing the musical dramaturgy of his first ballet.
In the same year, Ivan Vsevolozhsky decided to produce the complete ballet, and asked Modest Tchaikovsky to rewrite the libretto . I hope that you have managed to leave out the flood in the last scene All this is confusing. I cannot order the scenery until the story is decided upon, but there is plenty of time" . For this production, three piano pieces by Tchaikovsky were inserted into the ballet, namely Nos.
As in the production, and in all subsequent ones, Swan Lake was never performed in its entirety i. Nikolay Kashkin 's piano arrangement of Swan Lake appeared in an edition by Pyotr Jurgenson in February for the premiere. In Jurgenson published the full score of the ballet corresponding to the composer's manuscript score, with an appendix containing the Russian Dance Act III, No. At this time, the Russian text of the libretto, included in the full score, was translated into the French language . In the same year, Jurgenson reprinted Nikolay Kashkin 's piano score with the Russian text of the libretto, with an appendix including the Russian Dance .
When the full score was published in , Pyotr Jurgenson commissioned a new arrangement of the ballet for two hands, made by Eduard Langer of Riccardo Drigo's version the latter's orchestrations of the Op.

The same editors also published Nikolay Kashkin 's solo piano arrangement, in volume 56 of the same series.
Tchaikovsky's manuscript score of the complete ballet except Nos. Mirnov of Kudrin Moscow , Nutcracker , p. A guide to the man and his music, vol. This report contains the curious decision by Pavel Kavelin: Tchaikovsky the outstanding roubles, but in accordance with my first decision, this fee is to be paid from the receipts from the first four performances of the ballet at roubles per night ".

Siegfried returns to the lake and makes a passionate apology. She forgives him, but his betrayal cannot be undone. Rather than remain a swan forever, Odette chooses to die. Siegfried chooses to die with her and they leap into the lake. This breaks Rothbart's spell over the swan maidens, causing him to lose his power over them and he dies.

Prince Siegfried, his friends, and a group of peasants are celebrating the Prince's coming of age.

She has organised a ball where Siegfried is to choose his bride from among the daughters of the nobility. After the celebration, Siegfried and his friend, Benno, spot a flock of flying swans and decide to hunt them. Siegfried and Benno track the swans to a lake, but they vanish.

Siegfried falls in love with Odette but Odette fears that the witch will ruin their happiness. Baron von Rothbart and his daughter, Odile, arrive.

Siegfried snatches the crown from her head and throws it in the lake, saying "Willing or unwilling, you will always remain with me!
The lake rises from the storm and drowns Odette and Siegfried. The storm quiets, and a group of swans appears on the lake. The titles for each number are taken from the original published score.
