Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake Glides into Hull

New Adventures Set For City Debut

Thrilling, audacious, witty and emotive; Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake is coming to Hull in 2019 as part of a nationwide tour.

The show will tour for 32 weeks to 22 venues throughout the UK including Hull New Theatre, before embarking on a number of international tour dates.

New Adventures’ star Will Bozier, currently dancing to great acclaim as ‘Harry, the Pilot’, in Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella and former English National Ballet star Max Westwell, who was also recently seen in the West End in An American in Paris, are both making their debuts in the role of ‘The Swan’.

While returning to the role of ‘The Prince’, are hull-born dancer Liam Mower* (currently wowing audiences as ‘The Angel’ in Cinderella) and Dominic North (acclaimed star of Edward Scissorhands, The Car Man, Sleeping Beauty, The Red Shoes and currently Cinderella). They are joined by New Adventures’ newcomer, James Lovell who is making his professional debut.

‘The Queen’ will be performed by two New Adventures’ favourites, Nicole Kabera and Katrina Lyndon both making their debuts in this role, while Katrina Lyndon also takes on the role of ‘The Girlfriend’ alongside Freya Field and Carrie Willis who are both returning to the Swan Lake Company.

The company also includes a number of dancers making their New Adventures’ debut including; Nicole Alphonce, Leigh Alderson, Andrew Ashton, Jonathan Luke Baker, Benjamin Bazeley, Alistair Beattie, Lewis Bondu, Isaac Bowry, Megan Cameron, João Castro, Zanna Cornelis, Kayla Collymore, Keenan Fletcher, Alex Fadayiro, Michaela Guibarra, Bryony Harrison, Nicholas Keegan, Shoko Ito, Courtney Liu, Jack Mitchell, Harry Ondrak-Wright, Barnaby Quarendon, Jack William Parry, Sam Salter, Stan West and Milwhynne Williams.

Matthew Bourne said “With the largest cast in our repertory, Swan Lake always gives us the opportunity to bring a wealth of new talent into the Company and I’m excited to welcome so many new dancers into the New Adventures family.”

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake returns with a fresh look for the 21st Century. Retaining the iconic elements of the original production loved by millions around the world, Matthew Bourne and his Associate Artists, award-winning designers Lez Brotherston (Set and Costumes) and Paule Constable (Lighting) will create an exciting re-imagining of the classic production.

Collecting over 30 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.
