Matthew Bourne/New Adventures, Swan Lake at Sadler’s Wells
Opening on 4th December 2018 – The year ends on a high at Sadler’ Wells with the return of Mathew Bourne’s epoch-making Swan Lake and its massed ranks of fierce male swans, now reworked for the 21st century. Bourne’s Swan Lake is Sadler’s Wells Christmas offering.
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.
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. Until 27th January.
