A first for cinema

A REVOLUTIONARY take on Swan Lake screens at Apollo Cinema later this month.

A world first 3D screening of Matthew Bourne’s version of the classic ballet takes place at the Barrow cinema on Monday May 28.

This iconic production, perhaps best-known for replacing the traditional female company with a menacing male ensemble, was filmed in 3D at Sadler’s Wells, London, in 2011 with a stellar cast, including Richard Winsor as the lead Swan, Dominic North as The Prince and Nina Goldman as The Queen.

It is the world’s first 3D Swan Lake – and the multi-camera 3D shoot has created an illusion of space around the dancers, drawing the spectator onto the stage and bringing a dramatic realism to the story.

With more than 30 international theatre awards including three Tonys and an Olivier, Swan Lake is the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway. Diane Edwards, general manager of Apollo Cinemas Barrow, says: “Matthew Bourne’s production has delighted audiences in the West End and Broadway for many years and to now be able to bring it to the audiences at Apollo Cinemas Barrow, is very exciting for all involved.”

Swan Lake 3D screens at Apollo Cinema in Barrow, on May 28 at 7pm, and tickets are available from the box office.
