The famous “pas de deux” from the Third Act of Swan Lake is perhaps the most famous duet in the ballet world. The entree, adagio, two solos and coda are filled with all manner of virtuosity with the peak of excitement being reached in the coda, which has the famous sequence of thirty-two fouettes (introduced in 1895 by the great Legnani).
