When The Beatles and The Rolling Stones invaded America back in the 1960s, rock 'n' roll changed forever. Relive this revolution in Trey McIntyre's A Day in the Life, an energetic, thrillingly visual, and emotional journey set to classic Beatles tunes. Considered to be one of today most innovative choreographers, Christopher Wheeldon's There Where She Loved has been described as the perfect mix of classical ballet with contemporary choreography utilizing pointe work and technique in creative contemporary ways. Through poignant lyrics, hard-driving guitar licks, and strutting dance, Christopher Bruce's highly-acclaimed rock ballet Rooster is the penultimate "battle of the sexes."
