Dance classic to tour again

One of the most popular dance productions ever staged, Matthew Bourne’s multi award-winning hit Swan Lake, will tour extensively again next year.

As part of this eagerly-awaited tour around the country, it will visit Nottingham’s Theatre Royal from March 11-15.

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 Sawn 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.

And, of course, the ballet features one of the most famous and attractive musical scores by Tchaikovsky, still a hit 135 years after it was written.

Tickets are £17-£39.50. Call the box office on 0115 9895555.
