Matthew Bourne: Swan Lake 3D
UK, 2016, 1 hour 59 minutes
Director and Choreographer - Matthew Bourne
When it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant re–interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm.
An iconic production, perhaps best–known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble. The stellar cast includes the magnificent Richard Winsor as the lead Swan/Stranger, Dominic North as The Prince and Nina Goldman as The Queen. Breathtaking in its drama and intensity, filming is drawing you onto the stage and bringing a dramatic realism to the story.
With more than 30 international theatre awards including threeTonys and an Olivier, Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the stage, becoming the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway.
