ONE of the most popular dance productions ever staged, Matthew Bourne's multi award-winning hit Swan Lake, makes its triumphant return to the Theatre Royal Plymouth from October 18 to 26.
Premiering at Sadler's Wells in 1995, Bourne's modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm.
He blends dance, humour and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston 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 more than 30 international theatre awards including three Tony Awards, 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 Broadway and enjoyed five successful tours in the UK and thrilled audiences all over the world.
