Dutch National Ballet – Frida – Amsterdam

★★★★✰   This was much more than my expectation of an update to Broken Wings. Part prequel, part sequel; it now stands proudly alone as an excellent new addition to the Dutch ballet repertoire.

English National Ballet – She Persisted: Broken Wings, Nora, Le Sacre du printemps – London

★★★★✰   Grouping this diverse triple bill under the title She Persisted works in so many ways…
