Boys from south Wales dance in Lord of the Flies

He's Britain's best known choreographer, famous for his daring interpretations of classics like Sleeping Beauty and his all-male version of Swan Lake.

For his latest production, Matthew Bourne has chosen 24 boys from across south Wales to perform in a reworking of William Golding's Lord of the Flies.

Many of the young performers are complete novices and it is hoped the new show will encourage more male dancers.
