The Winter's Tale
Fathom Events invites you to experience the powerful tale of a familyâ??s destruction when The Winterâ??s Tale is screened in select cinemas nationwide on Tuesday, February 17. Following his delightful full-length ballet Aliceâ??s Adventures in Wonderland, Christopher Wheeldon continues his highly successful collaboration with designer Bob Crowley and composer Joby Talbot to create his first ballet based on a Shakespeare play, The Winterâ??s Tale. The story follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child, and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet through remorse and regret â?? and after a statue comes miraculously to life â?? the ending is one of forgiveness and reconciliation. It is powerful material for ballet, with a story that allows for the portrayal of intense emotions between and within the characters, and the opportunity for the Company to create not just new central characters but the whole world around them.
