"NBT "Carmen""
   On Saturday I went to see NBT's "Carmen" in Edinburgh. I can only say that it was one of the most disappointing dance events I have been to in the recent past. The choreogaphy was dull and uninteresting, the rock star motif was inappropriate (surely the idea of a bull fighter is one of a man who loves physical danger - hardly the life of a rock star!) and the night we went, Carmen behaved like a spoilt 16 year old brat who needed to be taught a lesson. And could someone explain to me the point of the video at the start of the second act?

I have enjoyed NBT in the past, but this time they failed to live up to expectations.
