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