Matthew Bourne Dance Season

Matthew Bourne Dance Season

For a limited time, one of the world's most popular choreographer’s repertoire screens exclusively on Stream.

In a career spanning more than 30 years, celebrated British choreographer and director Matthew Bourne has been transforming the way we experience dance, reimagining classic works in bold new ways that speak to contemporary audiences.

This series of five performances, lavishly captured on film by the innovative production company Illuminations, showcase Bourne at his most distinctive. Perhaps his best-known work, Swan Lake, reconfigures Tchaikovsky’s beloved fantasy as a muscular corps de ballet of menacing male swans, while his combustible take on Romeo and Juliet relocates Shakespeare’s tale of star-crossed lovers to a juvenile detention centre.

Also streaming are The Car Man, Bourne’s sizzling and provocative riff on Bizet’s Carmen; Cinderella, a daring love story that transposes the enduring fairy tale to WWII London; and The Red Shoes, a two-act remix of Powell’s and Pressburger’s cinematic masterpiece set to the unmistakable music of composer Bernard Herrmann.

Presented by Illuminations and New Adventures.

Full cast and crew credits available in each product description.
