When it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, and took the dance world by storm. Now firmly established 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. A Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist, 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.

Collecting over 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys, 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.

Brilliant afternoon out

The dancing in this show was amazing. Two couples went and were thrilled with the production throughout.

Longo Show

the show was too long, lasted 2.5 hours incl the break and there were many repeating moments. The choreographies were repeating and there were not many changes on the set/scenes.

Creative and beautiful version of Swan Lake

A little too much kitsch

The dancing is average, while the story surrounding it was a bit too much Kitsch for my taste.

London Box Office customer


A modern take on the classic tale with Matthew Bourne magic and the sublime music from the ballet maestro Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. I would watch this again tomorrow and the day after.......

London Box Office customer

Great production with new often comical slant on story
