The Nutcracker

The Nutcracker

★★★★★ A Christmas Cracker:

With enough spectacle and showmanship to keep kids big and small spellbound, Scottish Ballet’s revival of Peter Darrel’s Nutcracker at the Festival Theatre and on tour is the perfect Christmas present.

Swan Lake

Swan Lake

★★★★☆ Love shock:
Bold and surprising, David Dawson has completely reworked Swan Lake for Scottish Ballet, cutting away the fat of its fusty baggage, although he discards some elements of clarity at the same time.

Scottish Ballet: Romeo and Juliet

Scottish Ballet: Romeo and Juliet

✭✭✭✭✭ Entrancing drama

The current run of the Scottish Ballet’s revival of Krzysztof Pastor’s Romeo and Juliet may be coming to an end, but it certainly isn’t the end of the line for this timeless classic.

Review – Hansel & Gretel

✭✭✭✭✩ Sweet and spicy:
Dark yet sparkling, uplifting yet chilling, Christopher Hampson’s new take on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale of a witch with a gingerbread house is a ballet of great contrasts and unexpected resolutions.
