‘Anthony Dowell’s production…offers the ultimate classical experience,
with the sights and sounds of a proud 19th century tradition running at full
throttle. Fancy a romantic tragedy in a tutu? Then this is the ballet for you.
…The production as a whole is beautifully formed and dramatically
convincing… And praise, too, for the corps, who made us feel the sorrow
and anger of the swans’ collective misfortune.’ The Times
