Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake

Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake from Birmingham Hippodrome on Vimeo.

I am anxious like a school kid the night before school starts. Tonight I am seeing the ballet Swan Lake for the first time in my long, long gay life. I always wanted to see Swan Lake as a child and tonight I finally get the chance! But this ain’t your mama’s Swan Lake. This one is gay, honey.

This Swan Lake is a little different. Funny. All male! Originally performed back in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s legendary production replaces the iconic female flocks with men. It’s a homosexual wet dream! Costumes! Ballet! Chiseled pecs! I am already dizzy and have yet to even witness the spectacular.

Get excited for me by watching the above video. And check out Swan Lake if you’re in NYC, Milan, or Florence this winter as the boys are on tour!
