proctors-theatre.JPGFilmed at Sadler's Wells in London and projected onto Proctors GIANT screen! Schenectady, N.Y. - August 23, 2012 -- When it premiered at Sadler's Wells in 1995, Matthew Bourne's triumphant re-interpretation of SWAN LAKE turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. An iconic production, perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, was filmed at Sadler's Wells, London in 2011. The stellar cast includes the magnificent Richard Winsor as the lead Swan/Stranger, Dominic North as The Prince and Nina Goldman as The Queen. Breathtaking in its drama and intensity! With more than 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys and an Olivier, Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the stage, becoming the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway.
