The Winter's tale

The Story:
King Leontes, possessed by a mad jealously, believes his pregnant wife Hermione to be having an affair with his childhood friend King Polixenes. His actions tear their families apart.

Background:
Christopher Wheeldon, Artistic Director of The Royal Ballet, created his adaptation of Shakespeare's late great romance The Winter's Tale for The Royal Ballet in 2014. Building on the success of Wheeldon's Alice's Acventures in Wonderland, The Winter;s Tale received ecstatic praise at its premiere, acclaimec by critics and audiences alike for its intelligent, didtinctive and emotionally powerful story, told through exquisite dance. It is now widely judged to be a midern ballet classic.
The story follows the destruction of a mariage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet through remorse and regret - and after a seemingly miraculious return to life = the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation.


Woolf Works

Introduction:

Viginia Woolf defied false order of narrative conventions to depict a heightened, startling and poignant reality. Woolf Works re-creates the synaesthetic collision of form and substance in her writings.
Background:
Life is not a seroes of gig-lamps symmetrcally arranged, life is a luminous halo. a semi-transparent surrounding us from the beginning of consciousness to the end...the proper stuff of fiction is a little other than custom would have us believe it -- Virgina Woolf, Modern Fiction.

Wayne McGregor's ballet inptych Woolf Works, inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf, met with outstanding critical acclaim on its preniere in 2015, and went on to win McGregor the Critics' Circle Award for Best Classical Choreography and the Oliver Award for Best New Dance Production. The Observer described it as 'a compelling moving experience; for The Independent it glows with anbition...a brave thoughtful work; The Guardian concluded that it takes McGregor - and the concept of a three act ballet - to a brave and entirely exhilerating new place'.
Each of the three acts springs from one of Woolf's ladmark novels: Mrs Galloway, Orlando and The Waves - but these inspirations are also enmeshed with elements from her letters, essays and diaries. Woolf Works expresses the heart of an artistic life driven to discover a freer, uniquely modern realiim, and brings to life Woolf's word of 'granite and rainbow', where human beings are at once both ohysical body and uncontained essence. Woolf Works was McGregor;s first full-length work by The Roal Ballet, and saw him reunited with regular collaborator Max Richter, who provides a conmissioned score incorporating elecronic and orchestral music.
Season: June 29 - July 9. 20-17.

Swan Lake & The Nutcracker


Swan Lake the wonderfully dark story of good against evil; Swan Lake is one of hte most famous and loved of all ballets. The glamerous set is evocative of the Russian Imperial world in which the balletr was created, while the haunting moonlit lakeside is perfect for the tragic conflict of the humn and spirit worlds and allows the audience to be swept away in the vulnerability of Odette/Odile.

The Nutcracker is one of the most extravagant theatrical events of all time, the original St. Petersgurg staging in 1890 was a remarkable illustration of the russian Imperial style at its peak.
this version of The Nutcracker has all the elements of an enduring fairy tale; adventure, fantasy, good versus evil and, of course, true love.
