Born at a Mardi Gras party in Portland, Oregon, MarchFourth Marching Band has become one of the nation's best live touring acts -- and you can catch them outdoors on Pier 15 backed by beautiful waterfront views. More than just a concert, a MarchFourth show is a celebration, with stilt-walkers, unicyclists, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, clown antics, acrobatics and more, accompanied by an eclectic big band in marching band costumes. Anchored by funky electric bass and featuring a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, MarchFourth takes you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, while honoring the musical traditions of American funk, rock and jazz. Opening for MarchFourth is Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution, a foot-stompin' gumbo of roots rock, old-school soul and New Orleans rhythms. Learn More

Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake was unforgettable! Bourne's conception and modernization of the classic ballet is tasteful and a perfect theatrical experience for our current time. As a fellow audience member said during the talk back, "I was Bourne again!"
The Goldstar tickets I purchased were great, orchestra seats. The purchasing and pick up process was simple and easy! 5 stars across the board!

Had seen the original on Broadway. There have been some revisions...a cell phone in the first act, for example. The dancers last night were superb and the last two acts were thrilling. However, the big minus is no live orchestra and members of...continued

One of the most enjoyable events I have attended. Have seen several ballets and knew a little history about this ballet but didn't expect it to be as good as it was. It is an excellent venue for people to "drag" someone who would never go to a...continued

New York City Center, Sadler’s Wells London and Back Row Productions present A New Adventures Production — Matthew Bourne’s _Swan Lake.
Matthew Bourne’s_ Swan Lake_ turned tradition upside down and took both the theater and dance worlds by storm when it arrived on Broadway in 1998 and went on to win three Tony Awards®. Acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage, it has become the longest running ballet in London’s West End and on Broadway, enjoyed four hugely successful tours in the UK, and thrilled audiences all over the world. Now Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns to New York for four weeks only.
Perhaps best known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, the production is now a modern-day classic. With a blend of dance, humor and spectacle, Bourne has created a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times.
“I have never stopped working on Swan Lake,” Bourne said. “It has never become frozen as a show but has, I believe, gotten richer and more heartfelt. In fact, this current production features, in my opinion, the finest company that has ever performed the piece.”
The top-notch cast includes Richard Winsor and Jonathan Ollivier returning to the role of “The Swan” following their 2009 debuts. Dominic North and Simon Williams will share the role of “The Prince,” and original Broadway cast member Nina Goldman will return as “The Queen.” Madelaine Brennan will also appear as “The Queen” and “The Girlfriend,” a role she’ll share with Shelby Williams. “The Private Secretary” will be danced by New Adventures resident director Steve Kirkham and company member Ashley Bain.
There will be a special post-performance talk-back with Matthew Bourne, Saturday October 16, immediately following the 2:00pm matinee performance._
