When Hobson’s Choice was premiered at the Royal Opera House in 1989, David Bintley’s earthy comedy after Harold Brighouse’s playreceived a standing ovation the likes of which hadn’t been seen since the premiere of Frederick Ashton’s La Fille mal gardée in1960.
With one of those scores you can’t help but whistle, composed by Paul Reade composer of themes for The Antiques Roadshow and The Flumps, this ballet has remained hugely popular ever since.
Don’t miss your chance to join feisty Maggie as she puts the world to rights, outsmarts her inebriated father, bags herself the perfect man and starts up her own business to boot,
in what is without doubt a classic of our time.
