"Swan Theme" is an instrumental composition created by the Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky for the ballet Swan Lake. While not originally villainous the theme was later used by Universal Studios for some of their classic horror films (more specifically Dracula (1931), The Mummy (1932) and is usually used as a backing track for the silent film The Phantom of the Opera (1925)) which made this theme become associated to the Universal Monsters (and specially Count Dracula) for the general public.
