Five times Olivier Award and Tony Award-winning choreographer and director, Matthew Bourne, presents a collection of dances that established his career.

Celebrating 30 years of his company, New Adventures, these pieces cemented the hallmark witty and entertaining style Bourne has since brought to international smash-hits including Swan Lake and The Car Man.

Watch With Mother - Seen But Not Heard
Joyce Grenfell’s famous nursery school sketches are set to Percy Grainger’s piano compositions and arrangements of Bach and Fauré. Not seen for more than 25 years, it explores the competitive and sometimes cruel nature of children’s playground games.

Town and Country - Lie Back and Think of England
Moving and hilarious, this heartfelt pastiche explores notions of a bygone era through the evocative music of Edward Elgar and Noël Coward, amongst others.

The Infernal Galop
A French dance with English subtitles celebrates all the traditional English clichés of France, joyously paraded for our entertainment and climaxing in Offenbach’s inevitable Can-Can!

Duration: 2 hours 10mins with interval
