#ROHobsidiantriple loved seeing the triple bill tonight. Obsidian Tear made me think hard about the relationship between music and dance.

There's a hint of Rite of Spring in the beautiful, brutal Obsidian Tear @WayneMcGregor But what is being sacrificed here, I think, is human connection, love. I was so moved by Matthew Ball and Calvin Richardson. #ROHObsidiantriple

Ferri and Bonelli partnership worked wonders as Marguerite and Armand, every move had a meaning, every look a feeling #ROHObsidianTriple

Ferri can express a lifetime of emotion in a simple arm movement, such pain, ecstasy and passion! #ROHobsidiantriple

Thank the goddess: no other dancer makes me enjoy Ashton’s Marguerite & Armand, but Alessandra Ferri’s fragility, grace & infinite subtlety touch my soul. Every meeting with Bonelli is a masterpiece of emotions. Ballet that is so much more than gymnastics. #ROHObsidianTriple pic.twitter.com/y1vrEkBP2k

Where else but @TheRoyalBallet would one guy - the splendid Robert Clark - get to play the Liszt B Minor Piano Sonata and then lead a ragtime band for half an hour... twice in one day? #ROHobsidiantriple
