Matthew Bourne is hailed as the UK’s most popular and successful choreographer/director. He is the creator of the world’s longest-running ballet production, a five-time Olivier Award winner and the only British director to have won the Tony Award for both Best Choreographer and Best Director of a Musical.
Matthew Bourne returns to his roots in Early Adventures, a programme of hit pieces that launched the career of ‘Britain’s favourite choreographer’ and saw the birth of the style, wit and sheer entertainment that his company New Adventures brought to Swan Lake, The Car Man, Edward Scissorhands and Sleeping Beauty. With designs by long-time collaborator Lez Brotherston, Early Adventures forms part of the company’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
