Just marvellous to read all the tweets about the new #ROHswanlake I’m now beside myself with excitement to see it on 12 June. Congratulations to @Liam_Scarlett who seems to have managed to please a lot of balletomanes on here. No mean feat.

Also loved John Macfarlane's lavish sets and costumes, from the stately glamour of the court to the shadowy gloom of the lake. I think this is the only time I've witnessed a spontaenous round of applause for a set (the ballroom when the curtain rose on Act 3)! #ROHswanlake

In #ROHSwanLake, Liam Scarlett and colleagues have created the production Tchaikovsky’s score deserves.

#ROHswanlake was the best I’ve seen for many years. Liam Scarlett got it just right. This one’s a keeper.
