British choreographer Matthew Bourne's groundbreaking and critically-acclaimed interpretation of the classic ballet Swan Lake will be the opening show for this year's da:ns Festival at the Esplanade.

The show, which replaces the female swans with men, will run from October 9 to 12 at the Esplanade Theatre. Tickets range from $20 to $120 and will go on sale on April 30 (Wednesday) from Sistic (www.sistic.com.sg). The rest of the lineup for the popular annual festival will be announced later this year.

The ballet, which premiered at London's Sadler's Wells Theatre in 1995, has received numerous plaudits for transforming the elegant ballet into a cutting-edge modern classic, combining dance, humour and mime.
