Broadway Entertainment Group in association with New Adventures are delighted to announce that one of the most popular dance productions ever staged, MATTHEW BOURNE’S multi award-winning hit SWAN LAKE, will return to the Alhambra Theatre from Tuesday 4 - Saturday 8 March 2014. It comes to Bradford as part of a UK tour after an eight week season this Christmas at Sadler’s Wells.
Premiering at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. Matthew Bourne 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 over 30 international theatre awards including three Tony 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 Broadway and enjoyed five successful tours in the UK and thrilled audiences all over the world. MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE is directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne with Set and Costume Design by Lez Brotherston and Lighting Design by Rick Fisher.
MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE is at the Alhambra Theatre, Bradford from Tuesday 4 to Saturday 8 March 2014. Evening performances are at 7.30pm and matinées are Wednesday 2pm and Saturday 2.30pm.
