Greg Haines has been commissioned to write the music for David Dawson's new creation 'The Human Seasons', to be premiered by The Royal Ballet and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House in London on November 9th, 2013.

'It’s a great privilege for me to be able to create a work for full orchestra in a building as esteemed as The Royal Opera House, and also to continue my collaboration with David Dawson – something that began at the Muziektheater with the Dutch National Ballet last year and will hopefully continue on into the future.' - Greg Haines

The new work will be performed in the same evening as Stravinsky's masterpiece 'The Rite of Spring' and Wayne McGregor’s 'Chroma'.

'Those qualities are amplified by Mr. Haines’s score, which alternates slow, shivery lines of string sounds with more propulsive, urgent rhythms' – The New York Times

'Greg Haines’ new score is lyrical, with meditative strings and rippling percussion' – The Independent

'This five-star choreography is matched and complemented by a five-star score by Greg Haines. I wish I had both the expertise and the space to comment more deeply on his intoxicating music, as I feel it requires a review of its own' – The Spectator

'Intriguing music' – Mark Ronan, critic
