Sunset Song

Sunset Song

✭✭✭✩✩ Faithful
Well put together and extremely well acted, Sell a Door and Beacon Arts Centre’s adaptation of Sunset Song is a neat piece of theatre but fails in the end to do justice to its source.

The Count of Luxembourg

The Count of Luxembourg

“✭✭✭✭✩ Hopelessly romantic”
A smidgeon of modernity, and Edinburgh modernity at that, is added to Elspeth Williamson’s clever production of Franz Lehar’s The Count of Luxembourg for Opera Camerata.

Embrace

Embrace

✭✭✭✩✩ Hugger’s delight:
Taking its audience deep into the Botanics at night time, Embrace delivers a multi-artform experience with interesting but uneven results.

The Crucible with Ten Poems

The Crucible with Ten Poems

“✭✭✭✭✩ Striking drama”
Scottish Ballet’s latest production is a double bill of two literary works that are alike and yet differ strikingly, creating a production that is surprising and emotional.

Outlying Islands

Outlying Islands

✭✭✭✩✩ Too grounded:
A fascinating exploration of human impulses lies behind Outlying Islands at the Traverse, but the uneven quality of some of the production means that it falls short.

Regeneration

Regeneration

✭✭✭✩✩ Timely adaptation:
Flawed but utterly human, the touring production of Regeneration at the King’s all week tries to do too much, but is extremely valuable nonetheless.

Aida – The Musical

Aida – The Musical

✭✭✭✭✩ Brought to life:
Beginning in a museum full of tourists, Limelight Productions, magically transports the Alhambra Theatre in Dunfermline back to Ancient Egypt, delivering an all-singing, all-dancing tale of woe.
