A triple bill of choreographer Matthew Bourne's masterpieces comes to Bromley
A trio of celebrated choreographer Matthew Bourne’s early works which launched his career are being performed in Bromley.
Matthew Bourne’s Early Adventures features a triple bill of Britain’s favourite choreographer’s masterpieces and celebrates 25 years of his success.
Being performed at The Churchill Theatre, the show runs between Thursday June 21 and Saturday June 23.
The adventure kicks off with Spitfire, Bourne’s first hit in 1988.
Both a celebration of masculine vanity and an affectionate comment on the preening grandeur of the classical male dancer, it hilariously places the most famous 19th century ballet showstopper in the world of men’s underwear advertising and mail order catalogue photography.
Town and Country from 1991 gave Bourne and his company their first Olivier nomination.
Remembered as the piece that crystallized the Bourne style, it is gloriously witty and ironic, but also strangely moving and heartfelt.
It explores notions of national character from a bygone era through the evocative music of Edward Elgar and Noel Coward amongst others.
The Infernal Galop was inspired by icons of France in the 1930s and 1940s.
This is France as seen by the uptight English imagination, with all the traditional clichés joyously paraded for our entertainment and climaxing in Offenbach's inevitable Can-Can.
Shows start at 7.45pm.
Tickets cost between £15 and £28.
A meal deal for a two course dinner at Ferrari’s Restaurant and a ticket for the show is £35.
