Watch: Christopher Wheeldon rehearsing Fool's Paradise
A glimpse of the choreographer working with Principals Federico Bonelli and Sarah Lamb.
Staged alongside Wayne McGregor’s Infra and Liam Scarlett’s Viscera, the work is an abstract ballet to a score by Joby Talbot, with whom Christopher worked on the acclaimed Alice’s Adventure’s in Wonderland. Fool’s Paradise contains a moving pas de deux, rehearsed in this clip by Principals Sarah Lamb and Federico Bonelli, which builds to a glittering arrangement for the whole ensemble as gold petals shower down onto the stage.
Last season we filmed a rehearsal of Christopher’s ballet Polyphonia as part of Royal Ballet Live. Watch footage of Christopher rehearsing Polyphonia.
As well as Fool’s Paradise and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, a brand new work by Christopher will also be staged during the 2012/13 season, opening on 22 February 2013 alongside a new work from Alexei Ratmansky and George Balanchine’s Apollo.
Fool’s Paradise runs from 3 – 14 November as part of a mixed programme.
