Abstract

This essay examines the ways in which contemporary masculinities have been questioned in Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake. Drawing on fairly-tale studies and queer theory, the essay argues that Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake exposes the vulnerability of dominant masculinity and functions as a cautionary tale for those who attempt to recuperate their dominant gender status.
