In this collection of Behind-the-scenes videos, Matthew Bourne sits down to look back on three of his landmark ballets, joined by longterm stage design collaborators, original dancers and new cast members. Trace how his once controversial Swan Lake—starring a powerful, brooding flock of all-male dancers—has evolved into the longest running ballet on both Broadway and the West End. Discover what led him to set his radical vision of Cinderella in Blitzera London, where the glamour of the silver screen and the fantasy of love illuminate the horrors of war. Meet the young creatives who bring a zing of fresh intensity to doomed teenage romance in the recent Romeo and Juliet—this time set in the future in an asylum for troubled youngsters.
