“The show that changed the dance landscape forever.”—Observer
“The world’s favorite ballet is still a marvel. Spellbinding.”—Independent
Retaining all the iconic elements of the classic production loved by millions around the world, British choreographer Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (set and costumes) and Paule Constable (lighting) have reimagined Tchaikovsky’s beloved tale by replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble.
Shattering conventions and turning tradition upside down, their Swan Lake collected over 30 international theatre awards including an Olivier in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway and took the dance world by storm. The thrilling, audacious, witty, and emotional production is a passionate, powerful, and contemporary ballet for our times.
