Leopard Films, from Sadler's Wells Theatre Presents a New Adventures production
When it premiered at Sadler's Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne's triumphant modern re-interpretation of SWAN LAKE turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. Now firmly crowned as a modern day classic, this iconic production is perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble.
Matthew Bourne blends dance, humor and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston, to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times.
Collecting over 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys, SWAN LAKE has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage. It has become the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway and enjoyed four hugely successful tours in the UK, thrilling audiences all over the world.
