"Choreographer Kelley Abbey’s flamenco-inspired dance sequences proved captivating, especially that “billowing red frock” – which has quickly become its own signature''
Arts Hub-Gina Fairley
"Choreographer Kelley Abbey contributes enormously to the enjoyment of the piece, not only filling the stage with swirling movement but also being incredibly mindful of the storytelling. A highlight involving most of the company is the flamenco-styled stamp/clap routine at the start of act two''
Simon Parris- Man in Chair
"Kelley Abbey’s choreography contains traditional with a blaze of brazen Broadway.''
Richard Cotter, Australian Stage
"Her Choreography picks up on the infectious pseudo-Spanish Rhythms of Bizet’s score, and is as stylish as it is striking.''

"Kelley Abbey has created a series of extraordinary dance sequences, which are superbly executed by the large dance team.''
