I gather from the reviews the critics weren't enraptured by "Cleopatra." Have any of our British posters been going? Any reports?

I'm with the critics, I'm afraid - some fine dancers doing all that they could with some very mediocre choreography.

The second programme - a triple bill with the addition of Acosta and Anderson in the Diana and Acteon pas de deux - went down much better, with Trey McIntyre's Second Before the Ground being the most liked. I'd like to see something else by Natalie Weir as some of the movement in In a Whisper looked interesting but - to my ear - she was completely overwhelmed by the music, the adagio from Schubert's String Quintet.
