Christopher Wheeldon already in an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland revealed for what it is meant ballet scene of the 21st century. Perfect synthesis of dance and musical numbers, bewitching voyage and technical finesse of light and shadow raised immortal literary gem in mrákotných stage heights of imagination. Now faced equally challenging. Convert Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale to a new full-length ballet opus in professional circles as it seemed too bold creative vision. Wheeldon surrounded by identical creative team composed composer Joby Talbot and set designer Bob Crowley, however, clearly proved: first criticism of the world's leading journals lavish words of praise.
