Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake
About Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake
Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake is as daring and beautiful as ever. This thrilling, audacious, and witty production was one of the last live performances at City Center in 2020. The production is perhaps best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered convention and turned tradition upside down—taking the dance world by storm. Bourne’s 1995 original earned more than thirty international accolades including three Tony Awards and an Olivier Award.
Retaining the iconic elements of the original staging loved by millions around the world, Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (set and costumes) and Paule Constable (lighting) have created a stunning re-imagining of this classic New Adventures production. Filmed live in January 2019, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake stars Will Bozier as The Swan/The Stranger, Liam Mower as The Prince, and Nicole Kabera as The Queen.
