Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake (126:50)

FREE PREVIEW

After causing an immediate sensation when it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century. Still retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, award-winning designers, Lez Brotherston and Paule Constable, alongside Bourne, have created an exciting re-imagining of the classic production. Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Liam Mower’s prince is a heart-stopping tragic hero trapped in a joyless royal routine when he stumbles across a moonlit flock of swans, which leads to a dangerous and romantic duet with the lead dancer, Will Bozier.
