Behind The Ballet: This Bitter Earth


This Bitter Earth by world-renowned choreographer Christopher Wheeldon is a moving pas de deux that fills up the room and takes your breath away. Dinah Washington’s soulful 1960 hit This Bitter Earth is remixed with Max Richter’s On the Nature of Daylight to create a cinematic and haunting soundtrack.
