Antony Tudor's The Leaves are Fading opens this programme with a new ballet by Christopher Wheeldon providing the central focus for this programme. Wheeldon has been an integral part of The Royal Ballet's commitment to new choreography. His last new work for The Royal Ballet formed part of the New Works programme in the Linbury Studio Theatre in 2000. He has also created several ballets in America where he has danced with New York City Ballet since 1993, and has recently been given the title of Resident Choreographer. Frederick Ashton's A Month in the Country is a shimmering distillation of Turgenev's deeply poignant Russian comedy of long summer afternoons, when a young tutor falls headlong for an older woman trapped in a loveless marriage. Danced to a score by Chopin this initially restrained yet increasingly eloquent ballet offers great opportunities for dramatic dancers.
