Matthew Bourne’s 1995 version of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is a stylish, witty and contemporary interpretation featuring an all-male cast.

Since its inception at Sadler’s Wells, the ballet was performed at the Piccadilly Theatre in London before touring worldwide and becoming one of the longest-running ballets ever. This award-winning version, told from the perspective of the Prince, is praised for being passionate and very moving.
