It's Cranko's Shrew.

The Sonnets is a new creation from Jessica Lang.

The (wonderful) Shakespeare Suite is by David Bintley and according to the subscription brochure is being accompanied by the magnificent Colin Towns Mask Orchestra.

I am especially excited by the Spring/Summer season and the T&V programme.

Subscription booking opened today for Friends. The form has been a total nightmare and I aged 20 years in 4 hours last week trying to fill it in!!! I hope I have a successful (for me) outcome!

It is the Cranko Shrew - Shakespeare Suite is by David Bintley - The Sonnets is a new piece by Jessica Lang.

We're seeing a new-to-us work by Lang at Pacific Northwest Ballet next season -- she's having a fruitful time in her career.

Well the 2015/16 season is nearing its end. We are now well into the run of Romeo and Juliet. The Lang work has been titled Wink and is due to be premiered on midscale North in May.

On Saturday afternoon at The Lowry (in Salford) Yaoqian Shang made her debut as Juliet with William Bracewell making his second appearance as Romeo (he had debuted with Delia Matthews on Thursday afternoon, which sadly I could not get to). I have to say that it was one of the most remarkable performances I have EVER seen of this production. It really was a very, very special afternoon. I had a lump in my throat from the moment they met in the ballroom, was in tears at the end of the balcony scene and sobbing out loud by the end!

These two young dancers were thought to be destined as stars - they have well and truly arrived!!
