Christopher Wheeldon and Ashley Wheater
- Artist Talk
Tony Award-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon is one of the most prolific and sought after talents in contemporary ballet. He has created some of the most celebrated dance of the past decade, including works for leading international ballet companies, the closing ceremonies for the London Olympics, and the Broadway sensation An American in Paris. Wheeldon is joined by Ashley Wheater, the artistic director of Chicago's Joffrey Ballet, to discuss the creative process, ballet today, and Wheeldon's much anticipated world premiere of The Nutcracker commissioned by the Joffrey Ballet. This program is moderated by Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun-Times.
