Dorian Gray at Sadler's Wells

Dorian Gray is the latest production from the fertile mind of Matthew Bourne, who first came to prominence with his all male version of Swan Lake.

The story is loosely based on the Oscar Wilde classic but the story is not that important, it serves as a thread to connect the episodic dances and the images.

You could probably resequence the scenes and it would still work.

The dancing is almost continually frenetic, erotic and intense. This keeps the excitement level and the emotional involvement high and makes for a most rewarding evening.
