Pacific Northwest Ballet: All Wheeldon
Pacific Northwest Ballet Performs Works by Christopher Wheeldon
Pacific Northwest Ballet opens its season with All Wheeldon
-- a program comprised of choice works by acclaimed choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. A prodigious talent, the British-born, Royal Ballet School-trained Wheeldon danced with the New York City Ballet from 1993 to 2000, and has since been the company's resident choreographer. He also has his own dance troupe, and has been appointed to the artistic team of the Royal Ballet. This program includes Carousel (A Dance)
, Wheeldon's all-dance synopsis of the famous musical that pays homage to composer Richard Rodgers and to Jerome Robbins' love of Broadway. Also on display are the intimacy and physicality of After the Rain pas de deux
, the cool abstraction of Polyphonia
, and the humor of Variations Sérieuses
