Inspired by the earliest romance novel from Greek antiquity, this World Premiere created by Alexei Ratmansky, today’s foremost choreographer will be one of the dance world’s most important events of the year. Star-crossed lovers journey on the high seas in an enthralling tale of abductions, shipwrecks and mistaken identities as the exceptionally beautiful Callirhoe is reunited with her dashing hero. Drawing from the Greek ideals of beauty and harmony, the past connects to the present in a remarkable new production from “the most gifted choreographer in classical ballet today” (The New York Times).
