MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE
RETURNS TO NEW YORK AT CITY CENTER
LIMITED ENGAGEMENT OCTOBER 13 – NOVEMBER 7, 2010
Tony Award® winning director and choreographer Matthew Bourne will be featured on the NY-1 News weekly television entertainment program “On Stage” throughout the weekend.
Bourne sits down with theater producer Frank DiLella to discuss returning to the city that embraced his groundbreaking production of Swan Lake when it first arrived on Broadway, before winning three Tony Awards® and becoming a global phenomenon.
Tune in to Channel 1 on Time Warner Cable in the New York metropolitan area on Saturday, September 25 at 9:30am and 7:30pm. “On Stage” will re-air throughout the weekend on Sunday, September 26 at 9:30am and 7:30pm, Monday, September 27 at 9:30pm and Tuesday early morning, September 28 at 12:30am.
Produced by New York City Center, Sadler’s Wells Theater London and Back Row Productions, the groundbreaking and multi-award-winning international hit production of MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE 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 features 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.” Original Broadway cast member Nina Goldman will perform the role of “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.
