WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT TWYLA THARP’S THE PRINCESS & THE GOBLIN

“Enchanting and funny…a powerful image of love. [Tharp] has succeeded here where so many have failed…a children’s ballet tightly woven with movement motifs and layered with symbolic meanings that adults can appreciate.”
– New York Times, 2012

“Intriguing & moving”
– Wall Street Journal, 2012
