The Winter’s Tale

Dir: Christopher Wheeldon
180mins   2018   UK   PG   

Shakespeare's tale of love and loss becomes compelling dance drama in Christopher Wheeldon's ballet adaptation, with music by Joby Talbot. Acclaimed by critics and audiences alike for its intelligent, distinctive and emotionally powerful story, told through exquisite dance, this new work, created in 2014, is now widely judged to be a modern ballet classic. The destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child and a seemingly hopeless love, miraculously ends with forgiveness and reconciliation.
