Peter Wright has been a dancer, choreographer, teacher, producer and director in the theatre as well as in television for over 70 years. His many productions of classic ballets are danced by companies not only in Britain but North and South America, Australia and Japan as well as across Europe. His production of Giselle has been danced by National Ballet of Canada for over forty years. Birmingham Royal Ballet, the company he created, has performed his Swan Lake for 35 years, The Sleeping Beauty for over 30, a production Peter staged in Budapest in April 2016. Similarly, his different stagings of The Nutcracker at Covent Garden and in Birmingham have charmed audiences for over three decades.
In Wrights & Wrongs, Wright offers his often surprising views of today's dance world, lessons learned - and yet to learn - from a lifetime's experience of ballet, commercial theatre and television.
