The Legend returns
In 1995, Matthew Bourne and New Adventures set the ballet world aflutter with their audacious interpretation of Tchaikovsky's iconic masterpiece. Bold, brilliant and vibrantly enthralling, this gender-bending, convention-breaking production will eschew tradition once more when it returns to Sadler's Wells this autumn, updated and evolved for the 21st Century.
Filled with drama, passion and doomed romance, Bourne builds a new story out of elements of Tchaikovsky's original, casting The Prince as his lead alongside a male corps de ballet as the cursed swans. Still replete with magic and beauty, this is an award-winning Swan Lake for our ever changing world, challenging the norm and leaving you enraptured by its shifted point of view.
