14:00 The Winter’s Tale
Ballet by Christopher Wheeldon in three acts with a prologue. Libretto by Christopher Wheeldon after the play of the same name by William Shakespeare. Music by Joby Talbot. Choreographer: Christopher Wheeldon. Music Director: Anton Grishanin. Set and Costume Designer: Bob Crowley. The Winter’s Tale is a quite complicated play to make successful performance. However, Christopher Wheeldon has found his right approach to it and demonstrated an ability to follow the age-old ballet traditions, successfully refracting them in a modern way. He refused of naïve pantomime – peculiar to old-time ballet performances and being a stumbling block for modern narrative ballet – and replaced it with more precise and significant gestures. He managed to tell this story (omitting some plot twists, of course) in a simple and clear language.
