    What a fabulous show. I came on Monday and Tuesday and am back again tonight in the restricted view, right hand side. Each performance was amazing Carlos, loved the emotion of the falling clothes and the story you told of the final piece. The whole cast and show were a maz ing. More please Carlos.

    I really enjoyed it - the production was a fusion for me - I really enjoyed the strong lines in the contemporary first act, then the blending of music from the onstage musicians as well as the story telling and dance-offs of the second act.

    Well, the third night and it just got better and better. The music is still ringing in my ears from the superb musicians and the blend of dance was breathtaking. Carlos was superb, the emotion evoked is amazing. I am just sorry it was only on for three nights as I would come and see it again!

    The first half, OMG! I am now truly through with choreographers the likes of the Maliphants and the McGregors etc. No rhyme or reason to their offerings! No more will my money be wasted in their direction! It's the 'Emperor's New Clothes' and I've seen enough. I've heard enough too, of them trying to brain wash us into believing it's 'Oh! so important to explore our heads our sexuality and our misspent past!'.

    The stage lights were turned on for the second half of the show! Oh! Bliss! Thankfully this half was colourful, rhythmic, entertaining and full of character!! Thank you Carlos!

    I wish never-the-less I hadn't paid £160 for two seats to be at last nights show!

    Brilliant show. It kept my attention the whole way through. Loved the music. Veronica Corveas' dancing was wonderful to watch as was Akexander Varona, Zenaida Yanowsky and Carlos (of course). He is magical to watch, such wonderful lines and artistry.
