One of the most iconic ballets in history has been given a makeover by an award-winning choreographer.
Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake will see men take centre stage as the corps-de-ballet in this menacing yet romantic take on Tchaikovsky’s original ballet.
Elements of the original production will still be translated in Bourne’s masterpiece.
Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, Bourne’s Swan Lake is best-known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble.
The move from a female to male-dominated company shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm.
Collecting more than 30 international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tony Awards on Broadway, Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for the times.
Bourne said: “With the largest cast in our repertory, Swan Lake always gives us the opportunity to bring a wealth of new talent into the company and I’m excited to welcome so many new dancers into the New Adventures family.
“I’m particularly thrilled to welcome cast members whose journey to this production came via our production of Lord of the Flies or through our Swan School which was designed to develop young talent for this company.”
Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake will be at the Bristol Hippodrome, in St Augustines Parade, from March 12-16.
There will be a 7.30pm performance every evening as well as a 2.30pm matinee on March 14 and 16.
Tickets, priced £19.40-62.40, are available from www.atgtickets.com/shows or alternatively from the box office on 08448 713012.
The Times has once again teamed up with the Hippodrome to offer one lucky reader a pair of tickets to see the show on March 12.
