Matthew Bourne transfroms Oscar Wilde's novel into a dark dance piece.
Set in the image-obsessed worlds of contemporary art and politics, this dark 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 themes behind Wilde’s cautionary tale – the destructive power of beauty; the blind pursuit of pleasure; the darkness and corruption that lie beneath the charming façade – have never been more timely.
