Hull-born dancer Liam Mower will star as The Prince in Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake at Hull New Theatre this month.
Swan Lake will be performed at Hull New Theatre from Tuesday 23 to Saturday 27 April.
The legendary production was first staged in 1995 and went on to become the longest-running ballet on the West End and Broadway.
Matthew Bourne’s powerful interpretation of Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece is a contemporary Swan Lake for our times.
He, along with award-winning designers Lez Brotherston and Paule Constable, has re-imagined the classic with a fresh look while retaining some famous elements of the original production.
It has collected more than 30 international accolades including an Olivier Award in the UK and three Tonys on Broadway.
Bourne said: “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.”
Alongside Mower, currently wowing audiences as The Angel in Cinderella, will be New Adventures star Will Bozier, currently dancing to great acclaim as Harry the Pilot in Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella and former English National Ballet star Max Westwell, recently seen in the West End in An American in Paris, who will both make their debuts in the role of The Swan.
