  1. Wendy Whelan / Edward Watson - Other Stories - Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 10 July 2015Performance 9 - 12 July 2015

    Arthur Pita’s concluding tribute to Brecht and Weill’s Threepenny Opera is typically mischievous and suffused with a dark sexuality that elides Weimar cabaret with Argentinian tango in a most agreeable manner. Watson rips the shirt from Whelan who responds by…
