Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon will hold a free dress rehearsal at City Center on Sunday, October 5 at noon. Working with dancers from the Morphoses/The Wheeldon Company, which will have opened its second New York season on October 1, Mr. Wheeldon will discuss and demonstrate the process by which new works are created.
Pre-performance talks are a regular feature of Morphoses/The Wheeldon Company performances, which strives to demystify ballet and at the same time help cultivate a new generation of dance audiences.
Tickets will be given out at 11:00am. Coffee and pastries will be available for purchase. The rehearsal is open to the public; it is not necessary to have a ticket to the afternoon matinee to attend the rehearsal. The theater doors will open at 11:30pm; seating is limited (each person on line is entitled to 4 tickets each) and admission is on a first come, first served basis.
