2 - The World of Matthew Bourne

For 25 years, Matthew Bourne has been setting theatres and audiences around the world alight with his adaptations of some of the world's best-known and loved ballets and operas. From Bizet's Carmen, imaginatively reset as a dance piece in an American garage – The Car Man - to the dazzling, award-winning Swan Lake, he has a string of critically-acclaimed hit shows that continue to tour worldwide. For those who know Bourne's stage work there will be a chance to spot extracts from many of his biggest hits but for audiences less familiar with his work this is simply a journey through a series of magical worlds where stories are told through dance.
