Triple-Bill Ballet: Wheeldon, Ratmansky, McIntyre and The Beatles
Why We Recommend it
This vivacious contemporary ballet show, created by three of the most celebrated international choreographers of our time, will feature classic Beatles songs, jazz-infused dance and more.
Presented by the Hong Kong Ballet, Wheeldon, Ratmansky, McIntyre and The Beatles is a historic triple-bill showcasing the charm and unlimited possibility of contemporary ballet.
The show will kick off with Christopher Wheeldon’s jazz-infused piece Rush, which visualises Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů’s spirited Sinfonietta La Jolla through the complexity of human bodies in motion.
Alexei Ratmansky’s colourful one-act ballet Le Carnaval des Animaux is a choreography renowned for its humour and acrobatic performances, featuring a whimsical menagerie of animals brought to life with leaping, balancing, spinning and clowning to Camille Saint-Saëns’ score.
The line-up concludes with Trey McIntyre’s exuberant rock ballet A Day in the Life set to a medley of twelve classic songs by the Beatles.
