The best of British ballet critics, Ismene Brown, has signed off her last review.
Formerly with the Telegraph, lately with the Spectator, she was a founder of the ArtsDesk website and a close observer of Russian affairs.
This is my last column as The Spectator’s dance spectator. It’s been the deepest pleasure to wander on your behalf around the fertile landscape of dance, but I’m off to Oxford University to do some research. Thank you for bearing with my thoughts and I hope you bought a few tickets as a result.
No UK ballet critic comes close.
