Charlotte Cripps finds out about the designs for costumes and set from Scarfe, “The way I approach it is that I want to create an environment of my own. I always do the costumes and the set so that it is my world.” Independent, 20 Dec.04

David Dougill discusses the designs, choreography and performances “The key idea in the English National Ballet’s latest (2002) production of The Nutcracker, which returns to the London Coliseum this week, is that everything in the story comes out of a picture book.”
