Watch Matthew Bourne’s much-loved production of Swan Lake filmed at Sadler’s Wells in 2012.
Premiering in 1995, Bourne’s triumphant modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, and took the dance world by storm.
Now firmly established 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.
Collecting over 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys, Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage.
Set to Tchaikovsky mesmerising Swan Lake, this production features a new scenario by Matthew Bourne and is directed and choreographed Bourne.
