Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake

CTC Theatre

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

Retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.

Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm.  Collecting over thirty international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.

‘Bold and beautiful as ever’ – (Daily Telegraph)
‘Spellbinding’ – (Independent)
‘Still original, still unmissable’ – (Metro)
‘Two decades on, Bourne’s Swan Lake still retains its power’ – (The Guardian)
‘Bourne’s Swan Lake continues to exert a hold on audiences’ – (The Times)
