Guys in white satin...

If 90's soft-core porn and Tchaikovsky had a love child, it would be Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake.

Really, that describes it perfectly clearly. Painted white bare-chested men in feathers manage to be graceful and cocky at the same time, while also managing a wierd androgynous David Bowie vibe. The White Feather Swan and Black Leather Swan (same dancer) illustrate a twinge of zen yin yang balance in everyone's dark soul.

Love/Hate, Swans/Princes, Tchaikovsky/Emmanuelle in Space.

Plus, with a threatening tag line like 'See It, or Live to Regret It!'... You better like it or they'll peck your eyes out.
