Israeli-born choreographer Hofesh Shechter is best known for his grounded, highly physical contemporary work. In March, he will take over the Royal Opera House stage in London, with a world premiere for The Royal Ballet.
This June, The Royal Ballet is making a long-awaited tour to Washington, DC, Chicago and New York City. But on February 17, ballet lovers across the U.S. can see the company in movie theaters for a one-night-only screening of Christopher Wheeldon’s A Winter’s Tale, which premiered last year.
The Royal Ballet's latest production comes from someone completely outside the ballet world: Audrey Niffeneger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife. Her latest project, Raven Girl, is going to be simultaneously released this Friday as both a graphic novel and a ballet, with choreography by The Royal's resident choreographer Wayne McGregor.
