Clark to Broadcast Ballet in HD: Swan Lake

For Immediate Release

February 22, 2013

Williamstown, MA—On Sunday, March 3 at 1 pm, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute’s Ballet in HD series continues with a broadcast of Swan Lake, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant reinterpretation of the classic ballet that took the dance world by storm when it premiered in 1995. Tickets are $15 ($13 for members and students). Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling 413 458 0524.

The iconic production, perhaps best–known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, was filmed at Sadler’s Wells in 2011. The stellar cast includes the magnificent Richard Winsor as the lead swan/stranger, Dominic North as the prince, and Nina Goldman as the queen. Breathtaking in its drama and intensity, the production has won more than thirty international theatre awards, including three Tonys and an Olivier. Swan Lake has been acclaimed as a landmark achievement on the stage, becoming the longest running ballet in the West End and on Broadway. Running time is 120 minutes.
