Published on Wednesday 7 November, 2012

The first review of Beauty & the Beast came from Laura Thompson of the Telegraph. She says, It is really rather wonderful. And has given it four stars.

Read the full review on The Telegraph website.

★★★★ - And as always with Northern Ballet, it was the fine blend of technical excellence and characterisation from the dancers that took us into the heart of this well-worn yet enduringly fresh tale.

Kelly Apter, The Scotsman

★★★★ - The magnificent finale of Northern Ballet's "Beauty and the Beast" is a complete sensory knockout.

Lothian Life

4.5* - David Nixon's vision for this piece realised by his extraordinarily creative team has resulted in a gorgeous visual and musical feast. Highly recommended for fairy story lovers of all ages.

Val Baskott,

★★★★ - ...the score is phenomenal; the sets and the lighting are, in the main, pretty epic, and the overall atmosphere a judicious balancing act producing a family show devoid of festive schmaltz. Result.

Rod McPhee - Yorkshire Evening Post

"Northern Ballet's Beauty & the Beast is spectacular, exciting and accessible."

Laura Stimpson -

"WOW! What a treat!"

Carole - North Leeds Life
