Mattew Bourne’s – Swan Lake @ Sadler’s Wells
January 23, 2025
Following many previous New Year visits to Sadler’s Wells for the now annual Matthew Bourne production, including Cinderella, The Red Shoes, Nutcracker!, Sleeping Beauty and most recently Edward Scissorhands, the same New Adventures team returns with his game changing Swan Lake.
Matthew Bourne’s audacious, rule-breaking reinvention of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece caused a sensation when it premiered almost 30 years ago. It has now become the most successful dance theatre production of all time, creating new audiences and inspiring generations of young dancers. In celebration of that ongoing impact, Swan Lake will take flight once more in a major new revival for the next generation of dancers, and for audiences who will experience it for the very first time. Thrilling, bold, witty and emotive, this genre-defining event is still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered convention, turning tradition on its head.
First staged at Sadler’s Wells in London in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake took the dance theatre world by storm becoming the longest running full-length dance classic in the West End and on Broadway. It has since been performed across the globe, collecting over thirty international accolades including the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production and three Tony Awards for Best Director of a Musical, Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.
You will notice below that it is a 2nd price seat that is included. This is because they don’t discount any of the other seats. We have our usual allocation in the stalls, directly behind the top price seats, which has served us very well on all our previous visits. With the continued popularity and success of our trips to Sadler’s Wells for the Matthew Bourne productions, it is advisable to book early with most previous years ending with a waiting list.
