Great review of a wonderful young company’s performance.
Swan Lake is undoubtedly one of the ballet greats and this performance by Ballet Theatre UK featured new choreography by artistic director Christopher Moore and some really beautiful costumes, designed by Daniel Hope. The gasp of the little girl sitting next to me in the audience as the swan’s classic tutu was revealed testified to their magical effect: mouth open, she crept to the edge of her seat and sat forward for the whole of the second act, apparently dazzled by the layers of tulle and sequins and feathers, lit beautifully in this small and intimate theatre.
Founded only in 2008, Ballet Theatre UK raises awareness of dance within the community by being accessible to people from all ages and walks of life, both nationally and internationally and is inspired by an eclectic mix of classical dance, theatre, popular culture and literature, informing new and innovative versions of those classics.
