Birmingham Royal Ballet – Hobson’s Choice – London

★★★★✰   Big-hearted, whimsical, suffused with equal parts romance and drollness, Hobson’s Choice is a gem of the BRB repertoire – long may it keep being revived.

Birmingham Royal Ballet – The Tempest (premiere) – Birmingham

★★★✰✰   In a nutshell Bintley’s Tempest is a visual triumph but feels slight choreographically and you’d be well advised to mug up on the story before seeing it.
