Mathew Bourne's latest and last trio of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet's does not disappoint. From the costumes to the liberties he takes with the classic story, Bourne's breathes fresh air into a piece reminding us that dance and classical music...continued

The show was amazing - the whole experience was perfect. No problems picking up tickets at will-call, and I used the red line to save on parking costs. Just a short walk from Civic Center station!

The performance was absolutely wonderful! My friend & I sat in the last row of the Mezzanine. The seats were acceptable for the view. Will Goldstar ever offer good orchestra seats?

I LOVED Swan Lake. Having seen 5 of Bourne's pieces, I found this new piece enchanting, but not as surprising and revelatory as his past work. But I had a good time.

Matthew Bourne is, in my opinion, the greatest choreographers---ever. He takes classic, tradition, then adds brilliant movement, and costumes, with hard egdy, sexy, sometimes gay overtones. Except that the music is canned, every one of his...continued

The costumes where great, the dancers were good, but the first half of the story line was a little hard to follow. Loved the musical choices, would recommend it, just with the warning that the first part of the story is a little unclear. The gold...continued

Great theatrical dance show. He carries the main themes of the original ballet but with a twist and a lot of humour. Wonderful costumes, sets and lighting. His dancers are beautiful.

Wow! Bourne is truly a visionary. Made me sad to have missed his Swan Lake. His interpretation was far better than ABT's a couple of years ago.

Amazing. I'm a big Michael Bourne fan, and it was great to see his latest reinterpretation of a classic. As a special treat, Mr. Bourne himself was there and addressed the audience briefly before the curtain. Highly recommend this to any Bourne...continued
