Vibrant and Refreshing
Master storyteller Matthew Bourne brings Tchaikovsky’s classic in a refreshingly new interpretation. The storyline, however, follows the same plot.

Her amazing adventure is brought to life by Bourne’s trademark pathos, wit, and mystical fantasy influenced by the extravagant 1930’s Hollywood. But most of all, Bourne turns the musical saga into his very own version with some innovative surprises that are bound to win hearts.
