Christopher Wheeldon will create a new Sleeping Beauty, with choreography after Petipa and designs by Jérôme Kaplan, while Johan Kobborg will make a new ballet, to be shown as part of a triple bill with Bournonville’s Konservatoriet and Lander’s Etudes. The season, which opens on September 15 with Swan Lake, will also include a double bill of Balanchine’s Serenade and Jorma Uotinen’s Jord, revivals of Napoli, John Neumeier’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a choreographic workshop and guest appearances from the Pantomime Theatre, Tim Rushton’s company and Bill T.
