MATTHEW BOURNE'S SWAN LAKE - DELAYED SCREENING
SAT 25 MAY 2019, 2PM
The legendary and award-winning dance production; Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, comes to City Varieties Music Hall.
Matthew Bourne commented: “I’m thrilled that this brand-new production of my Swan Lake will be screening in cinemas. It has become a modern classic much beloved by the British public and throughout the world. Its popularity has never been greater and several generations of audiences have been inspired and moved by its universal story of love and acceptance. Now 24 years after Swan Lake was first performed more people than ever before will be able to experience the dramatic power and mesmerising performanceson the big screen.”
New Adventures production of Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake comes to venues with a fresh look for the 21st century and is as daring and beautiful as ever. This thrilling, audacious and witty production is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered convention, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Retaining the iconic elements of the original staging loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set & Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) have created a stunning re-imagining of this classic New Adventures production.
Filmed live at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London, in January 2019, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake stars Will Bozieras, The Swan/The Stranger; Liam Moweras, The Prince; and Nicole Kaberaas as The Queen.
Collecting over thirty international accolades including an Olivier Award and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times.
Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake is directed for the screen by Ross MacGibbon and produced by Illuminations.
