  • Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake - PG

    Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake - PG

    Filmed Live at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London in 2019.  Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake comes to cinemas with a fresh look for the 21st century and is ‘as bold and beautiful as ever’ (★★★★★ Telegraph).  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.  This ‘spellbinding’ (★★★★★ Independent) re-imagining of the classic New Adventures production stars Will Bozier as The Swan/The Stranger, Liam Mower as The Prince and Nicole Kabera as The Queen.
