Emotional, audacious, totally original, Matthew Bourne production transforms one of the best ballets of the tradition in an elegant, funny, touching contemporary story. Maybe recognized the most for the substitution of the traditional female ballet with a “threatening” male ensemble, Matthew Bourne do more than this: he combines ballet, style, humor, show, comedy and pantomime to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake of our time. Swan Lake, with its over 30 international awards (among them, 3 Tony Awards) was celebrated as a milestone of the history of ballet and of international theatre.

Show Bees promoted the audacious rewriting of the most famous ballets by Čajkovskij with is adventurous union between street dance and ballet, dealing with the executive production and the launch of the show for the first time in Italy in March 2014. Swan Lake Reloaded is the Swan Lake version that everyone can understand because “if everyone knows what’s happening, then everyone can dance around an emotion”, declares the choreographer Fredrik Rydman. There’s no trace of sorcery or supernatural events in this interpretation. The story is set in the present, with Rothbart using drugs to obtain and exercise power around him. Swans are prostitutes dressed in white furs, leather boots and high heels shoes, subjugated by the protector Rothbart and by the heroin he provides them. The mix between completely different dance styles, street dance and ballet, is found in the music choices too. In fact, for the production, Rydman used, together with original music by Čajkovskij, tracks composed ad hoc by pop and rock Swedish and international musicians. The intuition of the Swedish choreographer has proved to be successful in Italy too, where the excited audience in Milan continues to ask the return of the Swan Lake Reloaded Tour.
