Why travel to see ballet?
Both Birmingham Royal Ballet and Dutch National Ballet have presented programs in the last few days which have earned absolutely glowing reviews which you can read by clicking here and here. In addition, The Stage called David Bintley's Hobson's Choice "a production with a feelgood factor that is almost off the scale" (click here for full review). But you would have had to be in Birmingham or Amsterdam to see them! As notoriously hard-to-please dance critic said of the BRB performance: "David Bintley's Hobson's Choice is surely his very best work, unmitigated pleasure for the spectator - an innocent, beautifully executed period comedy full of atmosphere, good characters, a perfect emotional arc and a perfectly brilliant musical score. ...It's lovable, it’s joyous and down-to-earth, it's worth a long journey to see."
