When it premiered at Sadler’'s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, and took the dance world by storm.

***** "Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake has lost none of its glamour but grows and changes with each fresh cast"

Now firmly established as a modern day classic, this iconic production is perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble. A Sadler’'s Wells Associate Artist, Matthew Bourne blends dance, humour and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston, to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times.

***** "The impact of this vibrant staging is undiminished; if anything it's even stronger"

**** "The perfect treat for Christmas - or any time of year"

Collecting over 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys, Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage. It has become the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway and enjoyed four hugely successful tours in the UK and thrilled audiences all over the world.


“Powerful, entertaining and visually splendid”
