Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century. Retaining the iconic elements of the original, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (set and costumes) and Paule Constable (lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.

Thrilling, audacious and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, shattering convention and taking the dance world by storm.

Collecting over 30 international accolades including an Olivier and three Tony Awards, Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.

This is the third time I've seen this productionsince it was first performed and it still thrills me. Brilliant stuff! And wonderful to be able to introduce my grandaughter to this wonderful ballet.

Wendy Blackman13th December

I thought it was amazing, the best thing I have seen on a stage.

mrs clare salmon12th December

Beautifully staged, brilliantly performed, and quirky as ever in the Matthew Bourne tradition. The plot is very different from the original- can sometimes be a bit confusing!

Valdis Bojarevics12th December

The best performance I have seen this year: emotional, beautiful, gripping.

Absolutely mesmerising, a beautiful interpretation of a traditional ballet, I had a front row seat in the stallls, I lived and danced my way through it with the performers.

Mr c Rochol10th December

Thought-provoking, entertaining and impressive. Fantastic skills on display from the performers, in the orchestra and on the stage, costume designers and those who have the job of keeping everything looking like it was the first time it was used. Great job laundry department and no I have no connections with any of them or specific interest in laundry work.
