Wheeldon’s 2012 pas de deux This Bitter Earth explores Max Richter’s electronic remix of the popular song by the same name.
This Bitter Earth is a pas de deux from Christopher Wheeldon’s Five Movements, Three Repeats. The full work was originally created for Fang-Yi Sheu & Artists, a group led by former Martha Graham Dance Company star Fang-Yi Sheu that included NYCB dancers Wendy Whelan, Tyler Angle, and Craig Hall. Set to a reorchestration of Dinah Washington’s This Bitter Earth by Max Richter, the ballet had its Company premiere at NYCB’s 2012 Fall Gala.
