Matthew Bourne reinvents Oscar Wilde's gothic fable Dorian Gray as a darkly seductive dance theatre event. Set in the image-obsessed world of contemporary art and politics, Matthew Bourne's '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 Oscar Wilde's cautionary tale have never been more timely.
