Britain’s favourite choreographer, Matthew Bourne, presents a triple-bill of celebrated dances that established his career…  Spitfire – An Advertisement Divertissement was Matthew Bourne‘s first hit in 1988. It hilariously reinvents an iconic classical ballet made for four prima ballerinas who have a ‘diva-off’, and sets it in the world of men’s underwear advertising.

Town and Country, from 1991, gave Bourne and his company their first Olivier Award-nomination. Remembered as the piece that crystallized the Bourne style; gloriously witty and ironic, but also moving and heartfelt, it explores notions of national character from a bygone era through the evocative music of Edward Elgar and Noël Coward, among others.

The Infernal Galop was inspired by French icons of the 30s and 40s. This is France as seen by an English imagination, with all the traditional clichés joyously paraded for our entertainment, climaxing with Offenbach’s irresistible Can-Can!

Part of the 25th anniversary celebrations of Matthew Bourne‘s company, New Adventures.
