#ROHmedusamixed fabulous Medusa with @NatOsipova bringing the story alive. Impressive staging and lighting. Audience cheering again. This is an excellent mixed bill. Fabulous singing from the pit as well ???? ????????????????????????????

Very glad to see Wheeldon's glorious Within the Golden Hour again @TheRoyalBallet, though I"m not entirely convinced by the new costumes. Disappointed by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui's Medusa. Osipova is wonderful, as always, but the ballet is muddled and curiously flat. #rohmedusamixed

Its gravitas, its grief, its ability to connect us all to the incomprehensible. Where one loss is all of our loss. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern is today and tomorrow’s lament. Cried from beginning until end. @RoyalOperaHouse @TheRoyalBallet @chooselove pic.twitter.com/e1EMSXLBXB
