I think the write up for the critics and press will be a tuff call, you can only write, Fantastic, creative, spectacular, fabulous and stunning so many time in a article, This piece for me has put up the flag of Northern Ballet to say, we have arrived and we are here to stay. If you like dance at all then it is well worth a visit, see this link Michelle Finlay I can only echo what's been said so far already.Cleopatra was a triumph!!!Red hot,Sexy, Passionate,Captivating.A Visual treat and breathtaking at times.I felt privileged to have been amongst the first to see it.Simply Stunning!!!!!Congratulations to all involved with this production.Long May you rein.
