BRB mini-tour - Seasons in our World & Peter & the Woolf, May 2019.

Recommended Posts

Did no Forum members go to see the show in Cheltenham? I am anxious to hear opinions of the touring  programme before I see it at Shrewsbury.

Have just seen matinee in Northampton. Absolutely wonderful. Three in house choreographers, two of them real newbies, have created the magnificent Seasons. Peter(Petra) and the Wolf is very good as well.

Thanks Tony. I was looking forward to Saturday anyway but you have increased my feeling of anticipation.

Plus there is still Hobson’s to come. Bring it on !

Now I know ! I enjoyed Seasons in our World. Attractive setting with very atmospheric lighting. Satisfying choreography with Winter particularly impressive. Very well danced and a shame that it will not be seen in Birmingham. 

I went expecting to tolerate Peter and the Wolf knowing the music inside out from my teaching days but I have say that Ruth has been brill (sorry). No unimaginative meadow, tree and pond but and urban setting with scaffolding and backyard bits that give much scope for invention. A cute girl (Petra?) as Peter, the bird is a hip/hoppy lad in a tracky outfit, the wolf is an angsty teenager in a hoodie, the cat is a very sexy young lady in very short skirt, the duck is a dumb young lady lost in her headphones, grandad is a baseball becapped  almost adult teenager and, best of all, the hunters are a group of young ladies obviously out on the pull. Excellent choreography, some lovely humorous touches, a ‘ let’s get on with story and no messing about’ approach and for me a total success. I eagerly await seeing it again in Birmingham.
