This WORLD PREMIERE by Jorden Morris, creator of RWB’s smash hits Moulin Rouge® – The Ballet and Peter Pan, will take you inside the contemplative mind and complex heart of music legend Leonard Cohen.

Absorbing… masterly choreography…” -- The Financial Times, 2010

From the internationally-acclaimed choreographer and RWB alumnus Peter Quanz, whose In Tandem wowed New York audiences at the Guggenheim Museum last season, comes a gorgeous new work that explores romantic relationships at different stages in life.

Playful, intimate and poignant, the moonlit ballet is “by far the finest new work commissioned by Hong Kong Ballet …[in] two decades...” (Kevin Ng, The Financial Times, 2010). The award-winning Quanz has created for the world's leading ballet companies including the Kirov Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and Britain’s Royal Ballet.
