Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake
While this reworked classic isn't pretending to be something it's not, it's hard not to come to it expecting the precision and technical finesse for which the traditional version is so renowned.

Pippin
Loosely telling the story of prince Pippin, the son of Charlemagne, and his somewhat picaresque journey through life, Stephen Schwartz’s 1972 Pippin is not your conventional musical.

The Glass Boat
It’s clear that these performers are creating something new and exciting, a phrase that is often used as a cliché but in this case is more than appropriate.
