Act 2 my favourite, so much fun and just the most gorgeous tree, definitely my favourite bit of set I've seen for some time! #ROHtale

Disappointed by #ROHTale promising Act I, Boring Act II and as for Act III? Meh! Not a work I would want to see again

I wondered how this complicated story cld be told by dance but turned out it was easier to understand without words. #ROHtale

#ROHtale Noone does tortured like Watson, Lamb sweet as Perdita, with lively act 2. BUT biggest applause was for act 2 scenery green tree

#ROHtale amazing. In the play the Bohemia scenes are hard going but in the ballet they are pure joy. Congrats to all.

#ROHTale Would have liked the encounter between Leontes & Polixenes had more to it, but story was strongly delivered & work is a keeper :)

#ROHTale was magnificent: it's got to be Wheeldon's best work yet.

Wheeldon's Corps choreography in Act II of #ROHtale is just brilliant - energetic, intricate, and beautiful.

Wow didn't expect such subdued yet absolutely sublime ending. Proves Shakespeare can be a ballet. Well done Wheeldon & co #rohtale

The bear as depicted neatly got them out of a hole, but many at stalls level missed it. I'm told it worked really well higher up #ROHTale

Standing ovation from the entire stalls, well deserved. #ROHtale is pure RB
