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, humor and spectacle with extravagant.

Impressive re-interpretation of Swan Lake

Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake takes the classic ballet in a modern direction, and it's all the better for it. The one-dimensional princes and queens of yesteryear are replaced with the paparrazi-besieged royals of today. Bourne also replaces the foofy white ballerinas of the traditional dancing swans with muscled men in black face paint. The effect is more striking than I thought it would be. This production first came out in 1995 so it's certainly not new, but it still feels like a distinct milestone in modern ballet.
