Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century.
Retaining the iconic elements of the original, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (set and costumes) and Paule Constable (lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.
Thrilling, audacious and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, shattering convention and taking the dance world by storm.
Collecting over 30 international accolades including an Olivier and three Tony Awards, Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.
Royal Ballet principal Matthew Ball stars in a superb revival of Matthew Bourne’s masterpiece
All-male reinvention of the world’s favourite ballet is still a marvel
Hissing, jabbing, stomping and swarming across the stage, they are thuggish, threatening, tribal – and totally mesmerising
It simply must be seen to be believed. Performance art perfection
