The Return of the Swan

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st Century.

Retaining all the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherson (Set & Costumes) and Paul Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake was first staged at Sadler’s Wells theatre in London in 1995. The longest running ballet in London’s West End and on Broadway, it has been performed in the UK, Los Angeles, Europe, Russia, Australia, South Korea, Japan, Israel and Singapore. The story is based on the Russian romantic ballet Swan Lake, from which it takes the music by Tchaikovsky and the broad outline of the plot. Bourne’s rendering is best known for having the traditionally female parts of the swans danced by men.
