For those not familiar with Bourne's work, he is renowned for putting a very contemporary twist on classic ballets, over the years he has adapted Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker and Cinderella. As well as using contemporary ballet along with other dance styles, Bourne is renowned for using male dancers; this years swans are all male.
Set against the classic Tchaikovsky score Bourne's interpretation is simply stunning.
I thoroughly enjoyed the show, standing ovation from all at the end... If you can get to see this in London, or as it tours the UK next year, then I urge you to grab a ticket. Mesmerising, a sheer masterpiece.
The only dampener on my evening was that my friend was unable to come with me.
Get better soon Dave, xxx
