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 Paule Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production. 

Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotional, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm.

Collecting over thirty international theatre awards including an Olivier in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s beloved tale is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.
