    Romeo and Juliet is my all time favourite ballet and Saturday night's performance was the only time I have come away disappointed. The balcony scene left me and my guests feeling completly flat. Dramatic, yes, romantic no.

  2. Last night Iana Salenko excelled a Juliet. Brava!

    Watched the matinee on 3rd October with Yasmine Naghdi and Matthew Ball. Absolutely beautiful performances from these rising stars.

    I was lucky enough to see Yasmine Naghdi and Matthew Ball in their Saturday matinee. I liked it a lot. Benjamin Ella gave a very subtle interpretation of Benvolio. He was so true to the Shakespeare characterisation of Benvolio as a "kind and thoughtful person who attempts to look out for his cousin". I would love to see him again. When is he next performing? Thanks.
