Den döende svanen är en solodans, koreograferad av Michel Fokine för den ryska ballerinan Anna Pavlova. Musiken är komponerad av Camille Saint-Saëns. Fokine hämtade inspiration från baletten Svansjön samt dikten The Dying Swan av Alfred Tennyson, men stycket ska inte förväxlas med Svansjön av Tjajkovskij.
