‘As bold and as beautiful as ever’ Daily Telegraph

‘The show that changed the dance landscape forever’ Observer

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.

Collecting over thirty international accolades, including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.

Sir Matthew Bourne OBE is widely hailed as the UK’s most popular and successful choreographer and director.

For over 30 years he has been creating and directing dance for musicals, theatre, film as well as his own highly successful, award-winning companies.

Matthew is the creator of the world’s longest running ballet production, and has been recognised by numerous international awards. He was knighted in the Queen’s New Year Honours 2016 for services to dance, and awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Award – one of the most coveted honours in the world of dance – in recognition of his outstanding services to the art of ballet.
