When it premiered at Sadler’s Wells, London, in 1995, Matthew Bourne’s triumphant reinterpretation of Swan Lake turned tradition upside down, taking the dance world by storm. A new version of this iconic production, perhaps best–known for replacing the traditional female corps de ballet with a menacing male ensemble, was filmed in 3D at Sadler’s Wells in 2011. The stellar cast includes the magnificent Richard Winsor as the lead Swan/Stranger, Dominic North as The Prince and Nina Goldman as The Queen. Breathtaking in its drama and intensity, filming in 3D creates an illusion of space around the dancers, drawing you onto the stage and bringing a dramatic realism to the story. For more information visit www.swanlake3dcinema.com
LIKE OUR PAGE TO WIN! To score one of two double passes to see this amazing production of Swan Lake in 3D simply like the Portside Wharf Facebook page, or the post pertaining to this competition, by Friday April 27 2012. The lucky winners will be
announced on the Portside Wharf Facebook page on Monday, April 30 2012. To collect your SS prize, simply show PA E L your ID at the Dendy UB ETS DO ICK Portside box office on T Saturday 5 or Sunday 6 May 2012.

MODA EVENTS PORTSIDE
Mum always has that unique touch when it comes to celebrating our special day, so with Mother’s Day just around the corner Moda Events team Jessica Layton and Lucy Wade reflect on that event they will always remember. “For my seventh birthday party, Mum, who is an exhibition planner, ordered a massive custom made sausage and coiled it up to look like a snake in the middle of the table. She had my Grandma play the fortune teller next to the snake and all my friends lined up to have our palms read!” says Jessica. “After that, she set up a spooky maze in the garage to cap it all off, complete with skeletons! She always went all out for birthdays, even when she had been in hospital she once stayed up all night making me a special boom box cake for my birthday.” For Lucy, it was a special Christmas present that Mum knew how much she wanted that stands out. “She handed me my other presents and then said, there’s just one more that I forgot about,” she says. “It was a TV remote, and she’d hidden the TV in my cupboard. I was so excited!” So what’s the tip from the events experts for a present that will delight Mum? Jessica says tea: “I think you can’t go wrong with tea – and there’s so many varieties.” Lucy likes to keep it simple: “breakfast in bed, because your time is often the best gift.”
JETTS FITNESS HAMILTON
