Matthew Bourne’s productions are known for their fresh and intriguing twist on classics. Four of the most beloved New Adventures productions–Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake, The Car Man, Cinderella, and Romeo and Juliet–are available on demand in rotation through April 4. Three of the productions have never been seen on stage in New York.
This iconic and ground-breaking British dance-theater company is famous for telling stories with their own unique theatrical take. City Center is the New York home for New Adventures with past appearances including the cinematic production of The Red Shoes, the gothic take on The Sleeping Beauty, and most recently the return engagement of Bourne’s timeless Swan Lake.
Digital access, with on demand viewing for 10 days, is $15 per production.

This passionate and contemporary re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic story of love and conflict is set in the not-too-distant future at The Verona Institute where ‘difficult’ young people are mysteriously confined by a society that seeks to divide and crush their youthful spirit and individuality. The two young lovers must follow their hearts as they risk everything to be together. Filmed live during its 2019 World Premiere National Tour, Matthew Bourne’s Romeo and Juliet stars Cordelia Braithwaite as Juliet, Paris Fitzpatrick as Romeo, Dan Wright as Tybalt, and Ben Brown as Mercutio.
Bursting with youth, vitality, and Bourne’s trademark storytelling, the UK’s brightest young dance talent join the New Adventures company, with direction and choreography by Matthew Bourne, design by Lez Brotherston, lighting by Paule Constable, sound by Paul Groothuis, and new orchestrations of the Prokofiev score by Terry Davies, played live by the New Adventures Orchestra conducted by Brett Morris.
