Christopher Wheeldon, an associated artist of The Royal Ballet, created this choreographic adaptation inspired by the tragi-comedy
Winter's tale by Shakespeare. Same as the modern ballet "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland", for which he has been deeply appreciated, Winter's tale was a show greeted with enthusiasm by his public, because of its originality and its touching manner in which the story steps in time.

Joby Talbot is also a personality in the world of music, being a very versatile composer, who created scores for chorus, opera and for the soundtrack of a few movies.

The theme of the ballet is focusing on the ever-changing feelings which travel in a royal marriage marked by jealousy, but with a happy ending, with celebrations and miracles.

With an extraordinary setting by Bob Crowley, who has been awarded with 7 Tony awards throughout his career, "
Winter's tale" is a ballet that cannot be forgotten, perfect for all ages.
