Retaining iconic elements from the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) 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 a female corps-de-ballet with a male ensemble, shattering convention, turning tradition upside down and taking the the dance world by storm.

Having picked up over thirty international accolades to date, including an Olivier Award and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a Swan Lake for our times.

The original Swan Lake was based on the story of Ondine, a German myth with traits of Romanticism that were adapted by Hans Christian Andersen for his story The Little Mermaid.

Bourne's Swan Lake radically reinterprets the myth. The focus of the ballet is turned away from the Ondine character to the man – the Prince. Below is a synopsis for those who are interested:

In this adaptation it is the Prince who struggles against repression and hopes for liberty, and who needs love to make him safe. In addition, it is not the mortal who is unfaithful to the nymph. Rather, it is the Swan who expresses love for the Prince, betrays him with the Stranger, before finally returning to him.
