The Winters Tale Ballet 28/04/2014

Synopsis
The world premiere of Christopher Wheeldon's eagerly anticipated ballet based on Shakespeare's powerful romance. Christopher Wheeldon's debut full-length ballet 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' enjoyed a rapturous reception from critics and is fast on its way to becoming a modern classic. Now he continues his hugely successful collaboration with designer Bob Crowley and composer Joby Talbot to create his first ballet based on a Shakespeare play. The Bard's late romance certainly presents plenty of intensely emotional material ripe for interpretation as a ballet. Its story takes in marital destruction through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child, and seemingly hopeless love. Yet despite the tone of remorse and regret, the uplifting comic ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation after a statue comes miraculously to life! For the Company, it offers an opportunity not only to create new characters for the stage but also to conjure up an entire world around them.

    Hi, Just wondered if anyone was having problems booking tickets for this. I am an unlimited card holder so should be able to book but having problems with the website. If anyone has already got their tickets from the Website please let me know. I will call the Unlimited line tonight and hopefully will be ok.

      Hi Heather, I booked my ticket about a week ago (as I'm also an Unlimited card holder) I didn't have any problems. I do know as a cardholder only one live performance can be booked at a time. Hope you manage to sort it out :-)
