    OMG OMG OMG!!! I still well up thinking of this show. Filled to the brim with emotion and talent, the dancers put their all into this production alongside beautiful dancing and divine choreography that we have come to take for granted from any Matthew Bourne production. Most of his awesome productions are recorded on DVD too for us to enjoy at home. Will be looking out for the tour of this show. I will definitely want to see it again live. Beautiful, haunting, clever, emotional ballet.

    Matthew Bourne has done it again with another amazing show. The music of Prokofiev is a joy to listen to and the young dancers in this troupe are a revelation. His tale is an interesting one in that it's very dark and disturbing. The scene is set in a mental institution and there are no Montagues or Capulets in this version. The ending is also slightly different. I loved it though purely for the music and the stunning choreography!

    Fantastic dancing and music. Very clever - but repetitious throughout. Worth seeing and typically innovative from Matthew Bourne. I probably wouldn't go to another one of his shows and his original Swan Lake is still his high mark.

    When the ballet first opened the scene was a little confusing but I had read the review so understood where they were taking the story. Very dark, sinister and malevolent, but what a brilliant production. The raw energy of the choreography and the sheer thought process behind it was amazing

    I loved this. The stage was stark and white and the dancing was as usual spot on. A must see production. More
