Serenade after Plato's Symposium

Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky  |  Music by Leonard Bernstein

This ballet is an abstract exploration of some of the themes that Plato investigated within his Symposium. In Plato's original text, a group of men convene and deliver speeches on the topic of love, with each man bringing a unique perspective to the proceedings. They explore how love can help the soul to understand truth in the pursuit of wisdom and beauty.

Thirteen Diversions

Choreography by Christopher Wheeldon  |  Music by Benjamin Britten

Geometries shift in refreshing ways to create Christopher Wheeldon's choreographic kaleidoscope of surprising images and spectacular contrasts. With four principal couples and 16 corps de ballet members, this is ballet on a grand scale. Christopher Wheeldon's Thirteen Diversions gives the audience something spectacular. Its structure is hierarchical, its changes of mood are sharp, its pas de deux are stellar, its corps ensembles are spatially impressive and everything is chic.
