What's On > Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake

Wed 5 - Sat 15 Feb 2014 (ARCHIVED LISTING)
A thrilling, audacious and original production, unquestionably established as one of theatre’s great events.

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake makes a triumphant return to Birmingham Hippodrome.
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

Just seen the matinee performance on last day - I was speechless and in tears at the end - such a powerful and erotic drama. I am chasing tickets now to see it again. Everything was breathtaking. Well done all - will see you again.
