Casting Announced for Matthew Bourne's SWAN LAKE at New York City Center

New York City Center today announced casting for Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake. Following runs in Los Angeles and Washington D.C., Bourne's passionate and contemporary Swan Lake will play New York City Center January 30 - February 9, 2020. Los Angeles Times recently raved, "Bourne's dance-drama will make you laugh, break your heart and dazzle you."

The role of The Swan will be performed by Matthew Ball, Royal Ballet Principal dancer, and New Adventures company members Will Bozier and Max Westwell. The role of The Prince will be performed by Andrew Monaghan and James Lovell. The cast also includes Nicole Kabera and Katrina Lyndon as The Queen; Freya Field, Katrina Lyndon, and Carrie Willis as The Girlfriend; and Jonathon Luke Baker, Jack Jones, Ashley-Jordon Packer, and Max Westwell as The Private Secretary.

The company includes Nicole Alphonce, Andrew Ashton, Benjamin Bazeley, Alistair Beattie, Callum Bowman, Isaac Peter Bowry, Tom Broderick, Megan Cameron, João Castro, Kayla Collymore, Zanna Cornelis, Cameron Everitt, Keenan Fletcher, Michaela Guibarra, Parsifal James Hurst, Shoko Ito, Mari Kamata, Nicholas Keegan, Jack Mitchell, Harry Ondrak-Wright, Jack William Parry, Barnaby Quarendon, Sam Salter, Mark Samaras, Alex Sturman, Katie Webb, and Stan West.

Please see below for Swan/Prince casting by performance.

Matthew Bourne's powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky's masterpiece premiered in 1995 at Sadler's Wells and earned more than thirty international accolades, including three Tony Awards (following its 1998 Broadway run) and an Olivier Award. Perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male swan ensemble, this production shattered convention and turned tradition upside down. Retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (scenery and costumes) and Paule Constable (lighting) have created an exciting re-imagining of the classic New Adventures production.

Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased online at NYCityCenter.org, by calling 212.581.1212, or in person at the City Center Box Office (131 West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues).

Leadership support for dance at New York City Center is provided by the Howard Gilman Foundation and The Harkness Foundation for Dance.
