For 40 years Mats Ek's works have stirred and captivated audiences and his reworkings of ballet classics such as Giselle, Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty have become classics themselves. Take the opportunity to hear Mats Ek talk about his life and career in House of Sweden during European Month of Culture.
