Notes and Editorial Reviews

Thrilling, audacious and totally original, Matthew Bourne's legendary production transforms one of ballet's best-loved stories into a stylish, witty, poignant, contemporary tale with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston.

Perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, Matthew Bourne blends dance, style, humor, spectacle, character comedy and mime to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times. Collecting over thirty international theatre awards including three Tonys, Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage.

Since its 9th November 1995 world premiere at Sadler’s Wells, Matthew Bourne’s
Read more breathtaking and sexy version of Swan Lake has become the longest running ballet in London’s West End and on Broadway. It has enjoyed several successful tours in the UK and has continued to thrill audiences throughout the world.
