Matthew Bourne's 'Swan Lake' returning to New York for limited time

UPI News Service, 06/07/2010 

Matthew Bourne's production of "Swan Lake," which first played on Broadway in 1998, is returning to New York for a limited engagement, producers said.

Bourne directed and choreographed the production, famously replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a male ensemble.

Performances are to take place at Manhattan's New York City Center Oct. 13 to Nov. 7.

"'Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake,' the triumphant modern re-interpretation of the legendary ballet, turned tradition upside-down and took both the theater and dance worlds by storm when it arrived on Broadway in 1998 and went on to win three Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards," its producers said in a news release Friday.

"Can it really be over a decade ago that my production of 'Swan Lake' was on Broadway? A memorable experience that culminated in our winning three Tony Awards," Bourne said in a statement.

"An incredible journey for a piece that started out as a government subsidized project that was seen as, at best, a creative gamble and, at worst, an outrageous folly! Of course, this was before people had seen the power and the majesty of our now famous male swans. I am happy to say that that journey has since continued and 'Swan Lake' has been seen all over the world, inspiring young (particularly male) dancers and creating an unprecedented new audience for dance."
