"The choreography that tells and enriches this story is beautifully constructed. In particular, a series of duets and solo performances in the second half powerfully evoke the emotional turmoil of the characters and gracefully highlight the musical themes and metaphors that run throughout. Above all, though, it is the timelessness of the ballet, its dream-like quality, which allows the audience – who are very close to the stage, almost part of the artifice itself – to be carried away into another realm by the story and performances".
