One of the most popular dance productions ever staged returns to Milton Keynes Theatre from Tuesday, January 28, to Saturday, February 1.

Matthew Bourne’s multi award-winning hit Swan Lake turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm when it premiered at Sadler’s Wells in 1995.

In his triumphant, modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake, director and choreographer Bourne blends dance, humour and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston, to create a provocative and powerful Swan Lake for our times.

Now firmly crowned as a modern 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, 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 Broadway and enjoyed five successful tours in the UK and thrilled audiences all over the world.
