I really enjoyed #Elizabeth at @BarbicanCentre last night from the Royal Ballet. Unusual mix of dance, song and spoken word with a single cello Ballerina Zenaida Yanowsky was mesmerising https://t.co/CgQhGbDsQo

Well that was wonderful. (Uncultured opinion alert) I'm not always the biggest fan of ballet, but this was an atmospheric and mesmerising combination of dance music, spoken word and history. #elizabeth pic.twitter.com/Z6PwSPteTF

.@TheRoyalBallet Elizabeth @BarbicanCentre possibly the most sexist I've ever seen: Elizabeth nothing more than the sum of her relationships with men. No religion. No Mary Stuart. No Armada. No Ireland. No age of exploration. Nope, just unfulfilled romance. Sorry. Not good enough

Inventive blend of documentary evidence, song and dance in the Elizabeth ballet @BarbicanCentre last night

Astute comment. #Elizabeth @TheRoyalBallet @BarbicanCentre : classy/creditable showcase for Yanowsky #siblings #dancers+ #music song text (esp @SamanthaBond) tho sometimes cello/speech compete. Focus '#private #passion'-s lent stylised intimacy... JEyre I recall more involving. https://t.co/GF4YvI0aZS
