MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE
EXCLUSIVE BROADWAY WORLD VIDEO SERIES
TONY AWARD® WINNING PRODUCTION RETURNS TO NEW YORK
LIMITED ENGAGEMENT OCTOBER 13 – NOVEMBER 7, 2010
AT NEW YORK CITY CENTER
Directed and Choreographed by Matthew Bourne
MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE is featured on Broadway World with an exclusive multi-part video series that debuts with new performance footage of the Tony Award® winning production.
Broadway World will release additional video segments featuring the production’s stars in the weeks leading up to production returning to New York for its anticipated limited engagement.
MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE, the triumphant modern re-interpretation of the legendary ballet, 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® and five Drama Desk Awards.
Produced by New York City Center, Sadler’s Wells Theater London and Back Row Productions, the groundbreaking and multi-award-winning international hit production will return to New York for a strictly limited run October 13 – November 7, 2010 at New York City Center (West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues).
Matthew Bourne blends dance, humor and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning set and costume designs by Lez Brotherston and lighting design by Rick Fisher, to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times. Now firmly crowned as a modern-day classic, this iconic production is perhaps best known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble.
Collecting over 30 international theater awards, MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage. It has become the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway and enjoyed four hugely successful tours in the UK and thrilled audiences all over the world.
MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE stars a mix of established New Adventures performers and newcomers. The company 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 Steve Kirkham and Ashley Bain.
Ticket prices are $25, $50, $85, $110 and are available at the New York City Center Box Office, through CityTix at 212-581-1212, or online at www.nycitycenter.org/events.
