A fantastic show
9 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well what can I say. Having seen Matthew Bourne's Dorian Gray, Swan Lake, and Cinderella I was wondering what to make of this.

He did not disappoint. A fantastic Matthew Bourne interpretation. Admittedly, the music is Bizet's Carmen, the story is The Postman Always rings twice. The result is fantastic.

If you've ever seen traditional ballet, you'll hate it. If you've ever seen Matthew Bourne ballet, you'll get it, and love it. How can such detail be instilled through music and dance without words - but it is.

My only criticism is the filming - I have seen all the other ballets on stage, and they didn't require closeups or back stage elements, and they benefited from audience reaction. Why did Channel 4 decide to give us such a dry, intrusive view of this show.

I am waiting with baited breath for a filmed version of Dorian Gray to be available. To my mind, his best production yet.
