The following letter appeared in today's The West Australian following their review of 'Embraceable You' this week. It's touching to have such passionate supporters.

"Letters to the Editor, The West Australian.

There is a discrepancy between the headline, ‘Stunning feats of grandeur’, Jo Pickup’s laudatory review and the score of 3.5 for the West Australian Ballet’s Embraceable You.

After sell out seasons of Snow-white and the Seven Dwarfs late last year and at the Quarry amphitheatre earlier this year, the current season at His Majesty’s Theatre also deserves a Sold Out sign.

I saw the performance on Saturday night. The focus is on the dancing and what beautiful, elegant and lyrical dancing it is. The great strength of the company is the uniformly high standard attained by each company member. Our own company deserves audience support and it would be an absolute shame of your readers dismissed the production as a credit rather than the outstanding grade it deserves.

Visiting companies might have illustrious names and places of origin but that is no guarantee of company or production excellence. Often there are good principals but the corps de ballet, costumes and set are anything but.

West Australian Ballet is a regional flagship company whose production and performance standards are now at the highest level. So let’s recognise that Excellence can be home-grown, not contingent on a 457 Visa.
