‘’…Halyna Ovcharenko’s colouristic, through-composed score for small orchestra gives the undertaking a fierce professional gloss, ranging from plangent folktunes to terrifying brass climaxes worthy of Prokofiev. There were moments when, with realistic campfire blazing, the stage thick with battle-smoke and mustering armies, and another orchestral pile-up brewing, you had pinch yourself to believe this was a children’s show.’’
The Independent on Sunday

‘’…Above all, the contributions of two young professionals made the ballet’s success possible: Halyna Ovcharenko’s lively, expressive score, and the choreography of Tom Sapsford which never played down to his performers’ inexperience’’.
The Independent
