    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 1 August 2016Performance

    The solo work in the later international dances at the ball, too, was remarkable: Angelina Karpova’s attitude-filled Hungarian Bride, Anna Tikhomirova’s gazelle-like Spaniard, Daria Khokhlova’s firefly of a Neapolitan – the astonishing performances just kept coming.

  5. Vamos Cuba! - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 1Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 1 August 2016Performance 26 July - 21 August 2016

    There are saving moments: a joyously debonair male solo that shuffles hip-hop and jazz; a standout reggaeton section with belting heft and energy.

    Press Review 2Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 1 August 2016Performance 26 July - 21 August 2016

    Cuba is a country on the brink of change but the island’s latest song-and-dance offering from choreographer Nilda Guerra (Havana Rakatan) still suggests a cultural timewarp.

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Observer, Monday 1 August 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    What it offers though is sensational dancing – virtuosic, beautiful and open-hearted – created by Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky to show off ballet as the most refined and communicative of the arts.

  11. Bolshoi Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    The never-ending soloists — alluring gypsies, back-bending flamenco dancers, a sprightly Cupid — are reliably excellent, and the show is best in full fiesta mode, when Fadeyechev throws everything at it 

  12. Bolshoi Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    Olga Smirnova, who danced Kitri on opening night, is the Bolshoi’s rising star. Tall and long-limbed, trained in the refined St Petersburg school, she’s a very elegant dancer.

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    In fact, no soloist put a foot wrong all evening – particularly high marks, too, for those three Dryads – while the corps were marvellously boisterous in the Act I town square, lyricism itself in the Act II vision scene, and always acting as a single organism.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    Particularly fine in the secondary roles are Vera Borisenkova, mysterious and haughty in the Spanish Dance, and Anna Antropova, lusciously musical and melodramatic in the Gypsy Dance.
