About Dorian Gray

Matthew Bourne's dance theatre retelling of Oscar Wilde's gothic fable was a sell-out success at Sadler's Wells in 2008 and the most highly attended dance event ever at the Edinburgh International Festival.

Set in the image-obsessed world of contemporary art and politics, this 'black fairy tale' tells the story of an exceptionally alluring young man who makes a pact with the devil.

Amongst London's beautiful people, Dorian Gray is the 'It Boy' - an icon of beauty and truth in an increasingly ugly world. The destructive power of beauty, the blind pursuit of pleasure and the darkness and corruption that lie beneath the charming façade; the themes behind Wilde's cautionary tale have never been more timely.

Matthew Bourne's first new production in three years reunites the team that created the double Olivier award-winning hit Play Without Words - designer Lez Brotherston, composer Terry Davies and lighting designer Paule Constable.

New Adventures is the foremost dance theatre company in the UK, having created an enormous new audience for dance with a series of highly popular productions including Nutcracker!, The Car Man, Edward Scissorhands and the now legendary Swan Lake.
