Following his highly popular 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland', created for The Royal Ballet back in 2011, Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon draws on the same music and design team to create 'a triumph' and 'something entirely new' (Daily Telegraph) in the evocative reimagining of The Winters Tale, Shakespeare's enduring story of jealousy, compassion and forgiveness.
Wheeldon's staging is 'eye-delighting' (Financial Times), effortlessly capturing the work's profound emotional trajectory, with powerful designs by Bob Crowley, Joby Talbot's skilful score (Guardian) and constantly inventive choreography.
Strong company performances - among them Edward Watson's 'masterly' portrayal of Leontes (Financial Times), Zenaida Yanowsky's 'commanding' Paulina and Sarah Lamb as a 'serene' Perdita (Independant) - put the finishing touches to a gleaming production, one that will be treasured for years to come.
