    An amazing tour de force! It seems incredible that any human body can reflect the insect movements so movingly and tragically. How does Watson's body survive this? I'm worried!

  3. Can't wait to see Ed Watson on Saturday!!!!!!!

    Sometimes, when I come out from seeing something incredible, it stops me from being able to understand people.
    I want to stop them in the street & shake them & say, "How can you just be acting so normal? Do you not know what's going on inside there?! It's phenomenal, & here you are, completely unaffected! What's the matter with you?!"
    That's how this production made me feel.

    This is the most powerful thing i've ever seen at the ROH.
    The Rojo/Polunin pairing for 'Marguerite and Armand' was stunning - and i adored 'Apollo/Aeternum', but mother of God ... 'Metamorphosis' was absolutely INCREDIBLE. They managed to create an entire world in that little theatre space. I've never been so transfixed in all my life. I'm actually disappointed i didn't think to book another ticket. Someone PLEASE tell me that there are plans to record this? There has to be a DVD release coming. Surely?!
