Expect the goings-on in that New Orleans apartment to be explicitly physical as Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire receives a steamy treatment by Scottish Ballet. Blanche DuBois still relies on the kindness of strangers as she sets tragedy in motion when she takes up residence with her sister and fuming hunk of a brother-in-law. On a minimalist set that shifts to convey various locales, choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa and director Nancy Meckler provide flashbacks to expand Blanche's backstory, promising the addition of a female perspective to Williams' ever-fascinating drama. The British critics called the ballet "a risk that paid off, definitely a keeper."
