With not long to go until the opening night of Christopher Wheeldon's The Winter's Tale on 10 April, The Royal Ballet is putting the final touches to the Company's first new Shakespeare adaptation in almost 50 years.
Christopher has reunited the creative team that made Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, with Bob Crowley designing and Joby Talbot composing another memorable score.
The production features two casts, each with six Principal roles.
The Winter's Tale runs from 10 April - 8 May 2014. Tickets are still available.
The performance on 28 April will be relayed live to cinemas around the world. Find your nearest cinema and sign up to our mailing list.
