THE COMEDY OF ERROR(Z) Ballet by Richard Wherlock after William Shakespeare. Music by Antony Genn and Martin Slattery WORLD PREMIERE/COMMISSIONED WORK   Recommended for ages: 8 and over   "Shakespeare’s "Comedy of Errors" as a ballet? At first sight this seems an unusual combination.  In his new ballet Richard Wherlock will examine themes that are directly connected to the realities of our digital lives and can also be found in Shakespeare’s comedy: confusion and misunderstanding.   It is based on a comedy by the Roman dramatist Plautus, whose play of mistaken identity about two twins was doubled by Shakespeare who also sharpened the psychological dimension of its underlying conflict. This double "doubling" of the characters offers a wealth of material for situation comedy and farce. An elaborate farce develops in which everyone always runs into the wrong twin at precisely the wrong moment.   Richard Wherlock choreographs his ballet as a dizzying and hilarious firework display of mistaken identities to a driving and pulsating score by the musician and composer Antony Genn, whose work includes the music for the successful British tv series «Peaky Blinders»."   The ballet runs from May 3rd till June 22, times vary.   For more information and to book tickets, check out:
