Premiering at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down. He threw out the tutus and replaced the traditional female corps de ballet with a whole Billy Elliot academy of menacing males in the ensemble.
Collecting over 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys, Bourne's Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage. It has become the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway and enjoyed four hugely successful tours in the UK and thrilled audiences all over the world.
This February (22-27) the hit makes its Liverpool debut at the Empire and we have three pairs of tickets to give away for the opening night..
Matthew Bourne blends dance, humour and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston, to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times. Casting for the 2009 revival includes a mix of established New Adventures performers and newcomers. Richard Winsor and Jonathan Ollivier will both be making their debuts in the coveted role of The Swan.
