A Winter's Tale
Monday 28 April7.15pm
ROH Live: A Winter's Tale (Ballet)
delightful full-length ballet Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Christopher Wheeldon
continues his highly successful collaboration with designer Bob Crowley and composer Joby
Talbot to create his first ballet based on a Shakespeare play, the late romance The
Winter’s Tale. The story follows the destruction of marriage through consuming
jealousy, the abandonment of a child, and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet through remorse
and regret – and after a statue comes miraculously to life – the ending is one of
forgiveness and reconciliation. It is powerful material for ballet, with a
story that allows for the
portrayal of intense emotions between and within the characters, and the opportunity for
the Company to create not just new central characters but the whole world around
