Bigger, bolder, stronger: Bolshoi returns to London with an epic 'Spartacus'
A classic danced with Cuban zeal
The Royal Ballet's latest triple bill celebrates the choreographer Kenneth MacMillan, in a programme of jarring contrasts: perky, gang rape, perky. Concerto and Elite Syncopations were created to show off dancers as classicists and as personalities. In the middle sits The Judas Tree, MacMillan's perplexing last ballet.

The Street, the award-winning BBC drama from Jimmy McGovern, has scored a bit of a coup. Tomorrow night's episode stars long-time Hollywood exile Anna Friel, back on British TV as a struggling single mum. McGovern has revealed that his highly acclaimed series won't be returning to our screens for a fourth season because of cost-cutting at ITV studios in Manchester, which produced the series – so catch it while you can.
