A co-production of The National Ballet of Canada and The Royal Ballet

Fresh off his 2015 Tony Award for best choreography for An American in Paris, Christopher Wheeldon brings us “the most heartfelt and resonant full-length ballet seen in decades” (Times, U.K.). The inventive staging, astute characterization, and precise emotional register for which Wheeldon is so admired bring new life to Shakespeare’s late romance.

In this ambitious work, elements of fairy tale, comedy, tragedy, and fantasy are woven together into a complex and deeply touching meditation on loss, redemption, love, jealousy, and the nature of family. Wheeldon joins together with the creative team behind his acclaimed Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (2011). Joby Talbot’s beautiful score, Bob Crowley’s magical sets and costumes, and lighting design by Natasha Katz, accented by stunning silk effects from renowned artist and puppeteer Basil Twist and projections from Daniel Brodie, underscore the bold expressionism and lavish imagination of Wheeldon’s choreography.
