Exciting, bold and totally original, Matthew Bourne's production transforms one of the best ballets of the classical tradition into an elegant, witty, and touching contemporary story. Perhaps best known for replacing the traditional female dancers with a "menacing" male ensemble, Matthew Bourne goes even further: he merges ballet, style, humor, entertainment, comedy and mime to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake of our modern times. Swan Lake, boasting over thirty international awards including three Tony Awards, has been hailed as a milestone on the international dance and theatre scene worldwide. Since its world premiere at Sadler Wells on 9th November 1995, Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake became the longest running ballet both in London's West End and in Broadway.
