This delightful full-length ballet follows the destruction of a marriage through consuming jealousy, the abandonment of a child, and a seemingly hopeless love. Yet through remorse and regret - and after a statue comes miraculously to life - 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.
Director: Christopher Wheeldon
