Audience reviews

"This is by far the best thing I have EVER seen by Scottish Ballet! In fact it could be the best piece of dance theatre I have ever seen. The whole production was excellent. The storytelling was vivid and riveting, the direction was tight, the set and lighting design were evocative and imaginative. The choreography was brilliant and surprising - I loved the blend of styles and the luscious flowing movements.
The dancers were all fantastic. Their acting was wonderful and they looked good, whatever style of dance they were performing. This production is of truly international standard. It will do down a storm wherever it is performed."

"Been to lots of @scottishballet performances and A Streetcar Named Desire was by far the best. Stunning. See it."

"Scottish Ballet's brand new production opened last night- a magical interpretation of Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire and trust us it is AMAZING!"

"Given my love for this play and Williams’ work generally, my expectations were high, but, truthfully, it was the best piece of theatre (never mind dance) that I have ever seen, and I don’t know how anything could ever possibly top it. The choreography incorporated so many elements of the original piece and the direction interpreted Williams’ work (as I understood it at least) incredibly well. Sexy, emotive and desperately sad in parts. Wonderful."
