MATTHEW BOURNE'S SWAN LAKE

When it premièred in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. Thrilling, audacious and totally original, it transformed one of ballet's best-loved stories into a stylish, witty, poignant, contemporary tale with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston.

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, to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times.

Collecting over 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys, Swan Lake went on to become the longest running ballet in London's West End and on Broadway and has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the international stage.

    Hi everyone!
    I'm Olga, I've just joined this group! Nice to meet you all!
    I and my boyfriend bought tickets for Swan Lake. But how or where are you going to meet? before or after the performance? because I don't know anybody...

    I would love to join in, do I have to purchase a ticket myself or someone has a spare one?

      Thank you Olga, will do!

      Nadya, thank you for your suggestion, I think it is a good idea to seat together even as a small group. I probably will bring my mum with me as ballet is definitely her kind of thing. Please let me know how you would like to proceed, I am happy to go with the flow!

    Hello,
    I need apologize, but I can't go myself on Friday. I fly to Amsterdam for weekend. I go to see performance on Tuesday or Wednesday. If it is Ok we could change date, or you all can still go on Friday. I can go to the Lowry and get tickets for cash, but need money in front. Please Nadya, Jen and Tanya let me know what you want to do.

    • Jenn

      Hi Olga! I can go Friday or I can go Tuesday. But Wednesday I can't. And I can give you money for a ticket as soon as I see you. I arrive next week, so I'm sure we will meet soon!

      September 23, 2013
