A collection of audience responses and press reviews of our diverse double bill, Stravinsky.

"Searingly intense"

★★★★★ – The Herald

"With this Stravinsky double-bill, Scottish Ballet’s director Christopher Hampson brings together a pair of distinct but connected works. From the ethereal woodwind opening of The Fairy’s Kiss to the frantic, exhausted collapse in The Rite of Spring, the programme is an encapsulating success that makes for a brilliant evening."

★★★★★ – Bachtrack

"Scottish Ballet continues to establish the brilliance of its dancers as well as its broader interest in styles."

★★★★ – The Stage

"If the incredible wall of sound emanating from the pit grabs you by the throat, the remarkable choreography of Christopher Hampson takes no prisoners either."

★★★★ – The Scotsman

"Christopher Hampson has struck a perfect balance between classical and contemporary since taking on the role of Chief Executive in 2015 and the company continue to go from strength to strength under his guidance. This Stravinsky double bill showcases this balance by beautifully marrying old and new, classical and physical, and honouring the music of this fabulous composer perfectly."

★★★★★ – The Wee Review

"A rare treat to be entertained, dazzled and challenged all in the same programme."

★★★★★ – The List

"A notable triumph for Scottish Ballet, in this multi-faceted tribute to a great and influential choreographer." (The Fairy’s Kiss in Kenneth MacMillan: A National Celebration, Royal Opera House)
