Reviews:

 

The Scotsman:

***** ‘captures the claustrophobia and darkness of a community lost inside itself...and praise to Scottish Ballet for recognising the benefits of bringing together a choreographer (Pickett) with a theatre director (James Bonas).’

 

The Herald:

***** ‘cuts to the very bone....a triumph’.

 

The List:

***** ’sensual and arresting...storytelling ballet at its best’

 

The Stage:

***** ‘triumphant and elemental’

 

The Times:

**** ‘bewitchingly good...Pickett and her artistic collaborator, the actor and director James Bonas, waste no time, grabbing us from the get go...Scottish Ballet has a hit on its hands’

 

The Guardian:

**** ‘burns with white hot intensity...a riveting gift of a show’

 

The Telegraph:

**** ‘this Crucible has atmosphere, drama and paciness in Spades’
