BBB Fall Preview: Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake

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 New Adventures production will return to New York for a strictly limited engagement. Collecting over 30 international theater awards, 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.
