Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake

 

PAST EVENT - Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns to Birmingham Hippodrome, 5-15 February, 2014



Firmly crowned as a modern day classic, Matthew Bourne’s powerful, provocative and totally original interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm, dazzling audiences in the West End and Broadway, and across Europe, Asia and Australia.

Since its London premiere, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage, collecting over 30 international theatre awards, including three Tonys.

Boldly shattering the traditional concept of swans in tutus, and blending dance, humour and spectacle with extravagant award winning designs by Lez Brotherston and lighting by Rick Fisher, Matthew Bourne has created a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.
