Program notes

From the prestigious Royal Ballet at world-famous Covent Garden comes this Shakespearean adaptation by choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, already considered a modern-day classic! Building on the success of his ballet version of Alice in Wonderland, Wheeldon brought the Bard to the ballet stage in 2014 to rapturous acclaim from critics and audiences alike, who praised its intelligent and emotionally potent story, told through exquisite dance.
