Wheeldon's New Winter's Tale in Cinemas

February 9, 2015

OK, so we have to wait a while to see Christopher Wheeldon’s An American in Paris on Broadway—previews begin in March. 


In the meantime, we can see his latest production with The Royal Ballet, A Winter’s Tale, in cinemas next Tuesday, February 17. It’s got juicy parts for Royal Ballet stars Edward Watson, Lauren Cuthbertson, Steven McRae and Sarah Lamb.


Critic Judith Mackrell raved about it in The Guardian: This Winter’s Tale is one of most fully achieved story ballets to be created at the Royal in years.” And Sarah Crompton, writing in The Telegraph, proclaimed that his “Winter’s Tale is a triumph. It is contemporary and classical, traditional and modern, narrative and abstract. It feels like something entirely new.”

Or…if you want to wait until next fall to see this rendition of Shakespeares’ play, plan a trip to Toronto because National Ballet of Canada just announced that they will perform the Wheeldon Winter’s Tale live from Nov. 14–22!
