The classic ballet has a modern retelling as Matthew Bourne’s multi-award-winning re-imagining of Swan Lake returns to The Lowry for another limited run. Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive, this Swan Lake is perhaps still best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered conventions, turned tradition upside down and took the dance world by storm. Collecting over thirty international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway, Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a passionate and contemporary Swan Lake for our times. A must see.
Tue 20 Nov – Sat 1 Dec, The Lowry Quays Theatre, Pier 8, The Quays, Salford M50 3AZ. 7.30pm (some matinees at 2pm), from £31.50, www.thelowry.com
