“There was probably a time when people asked why Picasso, why Stravinsky, and why Balanchine? Wheeldon is that good. This is possibly the greatest choreographer of our time and yet the world is still discovering him. PNB is in front of the wave on this one. We are only the second company to present an ALL WHEELDON program, but he deserves to sit next to the greats with an entire program of his own. I also think the range of is abilities is impressive, making an entire program of his work surprisingly varied.”
ALL WHEELDON: Features four works that showcase Wheeldon’s diverse artistry—Carousel (A Dance), After the Rain pas de deux, Polyphonia and Variations Sérieuses.
