Choreography is filled with tricky moments, and sometimes even the simplest steps or sequences can cause the most trouble.

Israeli-born choreographer Hofesh Shechter is best known for his grounded, highly physical contemporary work. In March, he will take over the Royal Opera House stage in London, with a world premiere for The Royal Ballet.

This June, The Royal Ballet is making a long-awaited tour to Washington, DC, Chicago and New York City. But on February 17, ballet lovers across the U.S. can see the company in movie theaters for a one-night-only screening of Christopher Wheeldon’s A Winter’s Tale, which premiered last year.

Mark your calendars: The Royal Ballet's cinema broadcast series will bring the company's Giselle to movie theaters across the U.S. next Monday night.

The Royal Ballet's latest production comes from someone completely outside the ballet world: Audrey Niffeneger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife. Her latest project, Raven Girl, is going to be simultaneously released this Friday as both a graphic novel and a ballet, with choreography by The Royal's resident choreographer Wayne McGregor.
