Prince Siegfried has come of age and entered upon a new world of affairs of war and the burdens of manhood. The Prince’s subjects come from far and wide to take part in festivities. They confer upon him the sword and scepter of authority and swear allegiance to their new ruler. The Prince is overcome by a desire to be alone, far from his guests. As he begins to search the contents of his heart he notices a flight of white swans heading toward the nearby lake. He is inspired and follows them there, disappearing into the night.
