His iconic and ground-breaking British dance-theater company is famous for telling stories with their own unique theatrical take.

A new title is released each Friday at 6PM (ET), the productions will be available on demand for 10 days.

The title release dates are:

Swan Lake: Friday, March 5th – Sunday, March 14th
The Car Man: Friday, March 12th – Sunday March 22nd
Cinderella: Friday, March 19th – Sunday March 28th
Romeo and Juliet: Friday, March 26th – Sunday April 4th

Three of the productions have never been seen on stage in New York.

Swan Lake was performed at City Center:

“Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake is as daring and beautiful as ever. This thrilling, audacious, and witty production was one of the last live performances at City Center in 2020. The production is perhaps best known for replacing the female corps-de-ballet with a menacing male ensemble, which shattered convention and turned tradition upside down—taking the dance world by storm. Bourne’s 1995 original earned more than thirty international accolades including three Tony Awards and an Olivier Award.”
