I just wanted to add here that there is another announcement to come on this show, soon, which I will post here the second I can, and to leave you with this thought :
You wouldn’t want to find yourself queueing into Trafalgar Square for returns on the night because you’d left it too late to buy a ticket, would you ?
To book :
Carlos Acosta and Guest Artists
