Photo Flash: First Look at Matthew Bourne's SWAN LAKE at Sadler's
Thrilling, audacious and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, shattering convention and taking the dance world by storm.
BroadwayWorld has the exclusive look!
Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st century. Retaining the iconic elements of the original, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (set and costumes) and Paule Constable (lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.
Collecting over 30 international accolades including an Olivier and three Tony Awards, Bourne's powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky's masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.
The Royal Ballet's newest Principal Dancer, Matthew Ball, will be joining New Adventures for our entire London season at Sadler's Wells in the role of 'The Swan'. Matthew will be making his debut with New Adventures and will dance four performances each week during the eight-week season at Sadler's Wells. Matthew joins New Adventures star Will Bozier, who most recently danced to great acclaim as 'Harry, the Pilot', in Matthew Bourne's Cinderella and former English National Ballet star Max Westwell who was also recently seen in the West End in An American in Paris. Will and Max are both making their debuts in the role of 'The Swan' and will perform throughout the UK and International tour.
