“Fresh, glorious and a reminder of why ballet-lovers are right to put so much faith in Wheeldon.” -- The Daily Telegraph
New York City Center presents the third annual season of Morphoses/The Wheeldon Company, celebrating the centenary of the Ballets Russes. Highlights include two U.S. premieres – a new ballet by Artistic Director Christopher Wheeldon, co-commissioned by New York City Center and Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London, and a new work by Australian choreographer Tim Harbour, commissioned by Morphoses, as well as repertoire by Lightfoot León, Alexei Ratmansky and Mr. Wheeldon. The engagement will feature live music performed by the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, with opening night conducted by the orchestra’s founder and music director, Alondra de la Parra.
