Sarah Fahie, choreographerCritical praise for The DVD of Richard Jones’ La Scala production of Peter Grimes with movement direction by Sarah Fahie on Opus Arte:

“The handling of the so-important chorus part as a tribal unit, often twitching and dancing in an unnaturalistic manner (try the run-up to the climactic manhunt cries of ‘Peter Grimes’ in Act 3), is a major, original achievement for Jones and his movement director Sarah Fahie.” Gramophone
