Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake

New York City Center presents a New Adventures production of Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake.

Bourne's original 1995 production won both an Olivier Award and three Tony Awards, as it shattered convention and turned tradition upside down, replacing the female corps-de-ballet with an all-male ensemble. Now the new production, re-imagined for the 21st century, returns to New York City Center's Mainstage.

Our Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake Review

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake is absolutely breathtaking. Adapted from the iconic ballet by Tchaikovsky, Bourne’s Swan Lake reinterprets the traditional legend of an ill-fated prince who falls in love with a beautiful princess who has been cursed to live as a swan, transporting us to a surreal dream, in a near Brechtian tale of love and betrayal.
