Produced by New York City Center, Sadler’s Wells Theater London and Back Row Productions, the groundbreaking and multi-award-winning New Adventures international hit production returns to New York for a strictly limited run October 13 – November 7, 2010 at New York City Center (West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues).
Matthew Bourne blends dance, humor and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning set and costume designs by Lez Brotherston and lighting design by Rick Fisher, 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 theater 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 on Broadway and enjoyed four hugely successful tours in the UK and thrilled audiences all over the world.
MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE will star a mix of established New Adventures performers and newcomers. Richard Winsor and Jonathan Ollivier will return to the role of The Swan following their 2009 debuts; the role of the Prince will be shared by Dominic North and Simon Williams; the role of The Queen will be played by American dancer and original Broadway cast member Nina Goldman; sharing the roles of both The Queen and The Girlfriend will be veteran New Adventures company member Madelaine Brennan; The Girlfriend will also be played by New Adventures veteran Shelby Williams; and the role of The Private Secretary will be shared by New Adventures resident director Steve Kirkham and company member Ashley Bain.
The complete company of MATTHEW BOURNE’S SWAN LAKE will be announced shortly.
