When it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant modern

re-interpretation of SWAN LAKE turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. Now firmly crowned as a modern day classic, this iconic production is perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble. Matthew Bourne blends dance, humour and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston, to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times.

 

Collecting over 30 international theatre awards, SWAN LAKE has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage, and has thrilled audiences all over the world. It has become the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway and enjoyed four hugely successful tours in the UK.

 

This 2010 production features the exciting dancer/actor Richard Winsor in the dual roles of the Swan and the Stranger, in which he “exudes a charismatic narcissism that makes him both threatening and seductive.” (The Times). Richard has starred in many of Matthew Bourne’s productions, including Dorian Gray, Edward Scissorhands and The Car Man. He is also well known to television audiences as Father Francis in Channel 4’s Hollyoaks and featured in the dance film Streetdance 3D.

 

The Prince is played by Dominic North, his mother, the Queen, by Nina Goldman, and The Girlfriend by Madelaine Brennan.
