About Dorian Gray
Oscar Wilde's gothic fable becomes a darkly seductive dance theatre event from master storyteller Matthew Bourne.
Set in the image obsessed world of contemporary art and politics, this "black fairy tale" tells the story of an exceptionally alluring young man who makes a pact with the devil.
Amongst London's beautiful people, Dorian Gray is the It Boy - an icon of beauty and truth in an increasingly ugly world.
The destructive power of beauty, the blind pursuit of pleasure and the darkness and corruption that lie beneath the charming facade; the themes behind Wilde's cautionary tale have never been more timely.
Matthew Bourne's first new production in three years reunites the team that created the double Olivier award-winning hit Play Without Words (Designer, Lez Brotherston, Composer, Terry Davies and Lighting Designer, Paule Constable)
New Adventures are the foremost dance theatre company in the UK, having created an enormous new audience for dance with a series of highly popular productions including Nutcracker!, The Car Man, Edward Scissorhands and the now legendary, Swan Lake.
