Watch a video preview of Swan Lake or an in-depth interview with Matthew Bourne.
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._
