A NIGHT watching the powerful and elegant dancers of Matthew Bourne's hit production Swan Lake could be yours this month.
We are offering you the chance to win tickets to see the show at Bristol’s Hippodrome and watch leading men Jonathan Ollivier and Chris Trenfield return to the iconic role of The Swan.
The challenging role of The Prince will be played by Simon Williams, Sam Archer and, making his debut in the role, Liam Mower.
Premiering at Sadler’s Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s modern re-interpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm.
Matthew Bourne blends dance, humour and spectacle with extravagant, award-winning designs by Lez Brotherston, to create a powerful show for our times.
Now firmly crowned as a modern-day classic, this iconic production is perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble.
Swan Lake will be at the Bristol Hippodrome from May 20-24 at 7.30pm, with 2.30pm matinees on May 21, 22 and 24.
Tickets, priced £22.40-46.40, are available from the box office on 08448 713012.
We have teamed up with the Hippodrome to offer three lucky readers the chance to win a pair of tickets to the show on May 20 at 7.30pm.
