Winner of more than 30 international theatre awards, including three Tonys and a Laurence Olivier Award, Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake is a triumphant and thrilling reinterpretation of Tchaikovsky's original, Russian folk tale-inspired ballet. Bourne's iconic and breathtaking production -- which revolves around a young crown prince, his distant mother and the swan that represents the prince's desire for freedom -- took the dance world by storm when it premiered in 1995, and is perhaps best known for its replacement of the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble. The performance featured in this stunning, high-definition screening was filmed at London's Sadler's Wells Theatre in 2011 with a cast that includes Richard Windsor, Dominic North and Nina Goldman.

Enjoyed the screening, HOWEVER, the low pitch of the seating prevents a clear view of the stage/screen and subtitles, especially if there is even an average height person seated in front of you. It is irritating, otherwise the venue is very nice. Wish they could do something about the pitch for the seating.
Perhaps the subtitles could be placed at the top of the screen.
The Consul performance was my favorite.
We look forward to future opera screenings, specifically Puccini.
