Matthew Hart
Matthew Hart is back at the Royal Ballet as Pinocchio — but has the enfant terrible now grown up, asks Clifford Bishop for The Sunday Times.

If we are truly living in the golden age of anthropomorphism, as everything from Narnia to the existence of John Prescott would suggest, then Matthew Hart should be one of its most treasured artists. He has always had what one might call a surfeit of personality, which, in private, he reveals, has cost him friends, but on stage allows him to fill out the slightest or most fantastic characters and make them real.

A big hand for the puppet master
Recovered from a costly flop, choreographer William Tuckett is pulling the right strings with Pinocchio, says Debra Craine for The Times

Five years ago the choreographer William Tuckett produced a big-budget flop. It was a one-act ballet based on Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible; it had a messy scenario and ghoulishly caricatured designs from Ralph Steadman. The reviews of its Covent Garden premiere were devastating.

At that point you might have thought that Tuckett would give up altogether, for his ambivalence about his profession was already well known.

Pinocchio
by JUDITH MACKRELL for the Guardian

There is a beguiling homemade charm to Will Tuckett's all-singing, all-dancing Pinocchio, which belies its long and very ambitious list of collaborators. From the moment the boy puppet is born out of a crack in a cardboard tree, to the scene when he and his truant friends are turned into donkeys (scarily effected by hoofed crutches and buck teeth), we are plunged into a style of storytelling as simple and enchanting as the original tale on which the production is based.

Winner by more than just a nose
by ZOE ANDERSON for the Independent

Matthew Hart (Pinocchio) is at his best in odd, slightly grotesque roles. A tendency to exaggeration becomes expressive here, his limbs flailing as he tries to keep his wooden body under control.

Pinocchio
by LOUISE LEVENE for the Daily Telegraph

Our reluctance to engage with Pinocchio and his creepy old 'father', Geppetto, is by no means the fault of Tuckett's dancers.

Matthew Hart on Pinocchio:

"It's not an opera, it's not a dance piece, it's not a ballet, it's not a play – but it has elements of all of those things. It's full of lots of different art mediums that are juggled together for this bizarre show to be produced," he said.
