PLAY TIME: Chuk Iwuji in Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part II

Legendary choreographers George Balanchine, Rudolf Nureyev and William Forsythe revolutionized ballet, their works acting as bridges between the classical and modern forms. From April 4 to May 9 dance fans can witness the evolution of ballet over the course of a single evening when the Ballet de l'Opéra performs The Four Temperaments (1946), Raymonda (1983), and Artifact Suite (2004), choreographed respectively by Balanchine, Nureyev and Forsythe, together in one show at the Bastille Opera. A rare treat, even if you don't know your plié from your pirouette.
