“It was splendidly performed, with the dancers romping through the technical difficulties and bringing out the comedy."

-- Natasha Rogai, South China Morning Post, on Le Carnaval des Animaux

Wheeldon, Ratmansky, McIntyre and The Beatles will feature three of today’s most influential choreographers’ works.

Critically acclaimed Christopher Wheeldon’s jazz-infused Rush will be Hong Kong Ballet’s first Wheeldon ballet. Rush promises an unforgettable experience in music visualized through the complexity of human bodies in motion, displaying a wide range and breadth of skill and artistry. Alexei Ratmansky’s charming one-act ballet Le Carnaval des Animaux (The Carnival of the Animals) bursts with colour, humour and incredible acrobatic performances! Le Carnaval des Animaux features a whimsical menagerie of animals brought to life with leaping, balancing, spinning and clowning to Camille Saint-Saen’s exciting, melodic score. The line-up also includes Trey McIntyre’s refreshingly original rock ballet A Day in the Life set to a medley of 12 classic songs by the Beatles, brimming with nostalgia, soul and playful exuberance. Visually and rhythmically impactful, this emotional work artfully blends street smarts and classical radiance in a unique way that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser!

This eclectic programme will showcase the Company’s seamless blend of vitality, technical precision and grace and offers audiences a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the dynamic dancers.
