There's a new ballet at the Royal Opera House inspired by Jim Henson's "The Dark Crystal"

Here's the official site if you want to see it. Time Out said:
the show takes key elements and themes from the movie – fantastical creatures, the destruction of worlds, and as the programme note puts it ‘ecological overtones’. What we’re given is a 70-minute plotless mystical odyssey through different realms, encountering a cornucopia of creatures, elements and humans.
It might leave you panicking about the state of the world, but it’s a wild ride. Buckle up and let it take you away. 
I don't think there's any video online, but I posted a few more images below:
