Michael Berkeley welcomes the Australian-born choreographer and director Craig Revel Horwood, whose acidly witty comments as a judge have enlivened many series of Strictly Come Dancing. Craig began his career in Australia as a dancer, before arriving in Europe, where he worked as a dancer and singer in musicals. He appeared in the West End productions of Cats and Miss Saigon, and was Dance Captain in Crazy for You. He has been responsible for the direction and choreography of many hit shows, including Chess, Copacabana and Sunset Boulevard, and has also worked in opera, including La Traviata, Carmen and Il Trovatore.
His private musical passions, as revealed to Michael Berkeley, include extracts from Don Giovanni, La Boheme and La Traviata, as well as songs by Adele and Eva Cassidy, a tango by Astor Piazzolla, and an extract from Sunset Boulevard.
