Reuters got an exclusive access to behind the scenes of the famed ballet piece when performers from the State Ballet of Georgia performed Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake at the Sun Yat-sen Memorial in Taipei on March 2.

We also spoke to Lali Kandelaki, who plays the lead characters of the White & Black Swan. The veteran ballerina has been with the Georgia State Ballet for 20 years and counting.

The ballet tells the story of Odette, a princess who was turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer and a prince who saves her.
