    Press Review 5Hanna Weibye, The Arts Desk, Thursday 2 April 2015Performance 31 Mar - 2 Apr

    Choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and theatre director Nancy Meckler worked very closely on the production, which consequently feels tightly-plotted and taut with drama, the dance and the story always progressing in unison. 

  9. Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 2 April 2015Performance 31 Mar - 2 Apr

    The big ensembles, the wedding dances and lindy jives flow naturally from the smaller moments – and how interesting it is to see a female choreographer handling a ballet’s sex scenes. 

  10. Scottish Ballet - A Streetcar Named Desire - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 5Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 2 April 2015Performance 31 Mar - 2 Apr

    Cavallari is just super as Stanley, a depiction of prowling, unyielding masculinity absolutely in the mould of Brando (who famously played him in Elia Kazan’s 1951 film), while Eve Mutso’s Blanche is, if anything, better still. A lyrical classicist, Mutso (who create…
