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.

This is a stunning interpretation of the classic Swan Lake. A must watch for any ballet enthusiasts.

There is a lot of acting in this version and a far too strong representation of male homosexuality, distracting from the ballet itself. (When are the directors and dancers going to learn that its not their personal expression that matters, but the effect of the whole work?)
