Nothing beats ballet
Never mind the merits of opera and theatre - there's an art form that trumps both. By Charlotte Higgins for The Guardian.


You can assert - as was done on these pages recently - that opera is the finest art form of all, leaving theatre, that pedestrian, wordbound form, raving to itself while opera floats heroically into the stratosphere on a top C.
It's true that theatre beats every other art form hands down for sheer tedium - when it tries. Some of the longest, ghastliest evenings of my life have been spent subjected to the spoken-word theatre; guilty of these nights of torture have been some of our most esteemed national institutions (step forward, the Royal Shakespeare Company).
