Royal Ballet – The Illustrated ‘Farewell’, The Wind, Untouchable – London

★★★✰✰   Kevin O’Hare is commissioning choreographers who want to make use of what the Opera House can offer; he’s not setting out to declare where ballet ought to be heading and he’s not playing safe.

Michael Flatley – Lord of the Dance: Dangerous Games – New York

Somewhere between Liberace and James Brown, there exists an entity otherwise known as Michael Flatley. His flamboyance – the blousy, satin shirts, the glittering jackets – knows no bounds, nor does his insistent, swaggering virility.

Northern Ballet – Angels in the Architecture, Perpetuum Mobile, Little Monsters, Northern Trilogy, The Architect – London

Good to see Northern Ballet back at the Royal Opera House with a mixed bill of 5 new and old works, rather different to the full evening dramatic ballets with which they tour the nation.
