S39 Ep8: Matthew Bourne Interview. Creating a New Sleeping B

Video duration: 2:11Video has closed captioning.

Dance history and storytelling is important to choreographer Matthew Bourne, creator of a "Swan Lake" with an all-male corp of Swans, and an "Edward Scissorhands" ballet, among other productions. Even in his re-interpretation of "Sleeping Beauty," he remains "reverential" about the original, he says in this interview. "Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty" airs on Great Performances, April 25 at 9 pm.
