Themed harmonious coexistence between man and nature, the play tells the story of how the swans are forced to face existential crises and even on the verge of death, as the destruction of the earth's ecology. With the reconstruction of their home on Earth, the swans are eventually reborn.

Starting with the melody of "The Swan" by Camille Saint-Saëns, the show takes "Swan Lake" by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky as the musical thread running through the performance. Meanwhile, it integrates acrobatics, ballet, modern dance, and other art forms.

The drama is directed by Zhao Ming, who has won the Wenhua Award, the highest prize for performing arts in China. Zhao is also the director of the first-ever acrobatic ballet "Swan Lake". "Acrobatics is not only an art form with unlimited potential for visual expression, but also the art with its mission," said Zhao. The show "Swan" thereby portrays several allegorical characters like the swan, scarecrow, and robot, in a bid to call on people to protect the environment.
