This ambitious programme features Christopher Wheeldon’s Commedia, which premiered at Sadler’s Wells last year to wide acclaim, plus a brand new work by Tim Harbour, one of Australia's most exciting new young choreographers, and Alexei Ratmansky’s Boléro, which was created for the Bolshoi and is set to the music of Maurice Ravel.

For Programme Two, husband and wife choreographic team Paul Lightfoot and Sol León, resident choreographers of Nederlands Dans Theater, re-choreograph one of their existing works, Softly as I Leave You, specifically for Morphoses dancers Drew Jacoby and Rubinald Pronk. Christopher Wheeldon presents two works set to piano scores – the beautiful Continuum, performed to the music of Ligeti, plus a world premiere set to Suites for Two Pianos by Rachmaninoff.
