“Nixon is a master of psychological narrative: relationships are characterised by movement values, volumes are uttered in looks, glances and small gestures... The movement has ingenuity and fluency. The narrative is driven forward at all times... The dramatic material has to be appropriate or the ballet fails. This is a simple, immutable rule of good theatre, It is therefore a considerable measure of praise to state that Nixon brings off a convincing “Hamlet” that was cheered to the echo by the crowd.” Dixon, M.
