The Christopher Wheeldon Collection is a dazzling showcase of the theatrical imagination of The Royal Ballet's Artistic Associate, Christopher Wheeldon. With a stellar creative team, including designer Bob Crowley and composer Joby Talbot, he brings to life three celebrated works of fiction that pop as vividly on the screen in this collection as they did on stage for audiences watching live in the theatre.

Lewis Carroll’s ever-popular story provides the basis for Wheeldon’s spectacular production of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland that has delighted audiences all around the world since the ballet's premiere in 2011.

In The Winter's Tale, created in 2013, Wheeldon reimagines Shakespeare's enduring story of jealousy, compassion and forgiveness, effortlessly capturing the work's profound emotional trajectory.

For his most recent ballet in 2022, Wheeldon took inspiration from Laura Esquivel's Mexican classic Like Water for Chocolate, where the protagonist Tita’s emotions spill out through cooking to influence everyone around her in startling and dramatic ways.

These three compelling ballets, conjuring up worlds by turns whimsical and dramatic, are not to be missed.
