The Royal Ballet celebrates contemporary ballet with The Human Seasons, a mixed programme that includes a world premiere from Crystal Pite and works by Christopher Wheeldon and David Dawson.
Visionary British choreographer David Dawson’s first work for The Royal Ballet describes the cycle of life and is inspired by the poetry of Keats. A leading figure in European ballet, in 2005 Dawson became the first British choreographer to create a new work for the Mariinsky Ballet.
Christopher Wheeldon’s acclaimed one-act ballet is set to elegiac music by Arvo Pärt. Wheeldon created After the Rain in 2005 for New York City Ballet. This abstract work in two parts has found an extraordinary resonance with audiences around the world.
Acclaimed Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite creates her first work for The Royal Ballet, a large-scale ensemble piece to music by Górecki. One of the hottest names in dance today, Pite's many awards include an Olivier and a Critics’ Circle Award for Polaris at Sadler’s Wells.
