Matthew Bourne Swan Lake Cast 2018 Announced UK Tour at Bristol Hippodrome

Matthew Bourne Swan Lake Cast 2018 Announced:

Full casting for Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake has been announced today, with Matthew Ball, Will Bozier and Max Westwell to play The Swan. And, Liam Mower, Dominic North and James Lovell to play The Prince, on the UK tour of the New Adventures ballet.

The UK tour will launch in Plymouth on the 22 September 2018, before moving around the UK. It will be playing the eight-week Christmas season at Saddler’s Wells, eventually calling into Bristol from 12 – 16 March 2019.

The ballet is frequently considered an all male show, neglecting to consider the many major female roles including The Queen, who will be played by Nicole Kabera and Katrina Lyndon and of course, The Girl Friend, performed by  Katrina Lyndon, Freya Field and Carrie Willis.

Matthew Bourne said today “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. I’m particularly thrilled to welcome cast members whose journey to this production came via our production of Lord of the Flies or through our Swan School which was designed to develop young talent for this company. My thanks also to Royal Ballet Director, Kevin O’Hare, who was as enthusiastic as I was about seeing Royal Ballet star, Matthew Ball, dance this role, and was instrumental in making that happen.”
