The Lyric

Details

Three Shakespeare-inspired ballets that continue the Company’s celebration of the Bard’s legacy.

Jessica Lang captures the poetry of the sonnets in Wink, a brand-new work for the Company. José Limón’s The Moor’s Pavane distils the passion and drama of Shakespeare’s Othello into a thrilling one-act tragedy, tightly focused on four characters and their jealousy. In The Dream, love gets out of hand for mortals and fairies alike in an elegant and witty distillation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
