    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 27 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘… within seconds of McGregor’s Chroma it was clear the company had a winner, in what I swear must be the most electrifying opening of any ballet ever.’ 

  2. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 27 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘Honours all round — and also to a further hero, the conductor Richard Bernas, presiding over such an eclectic musical menu.’

  6. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 24 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘The drawback is that McGregor’s style doesn’t suit all. Sarah Lamb, Eric Underwood and Steven McRae thrive on his shrapnel moves, but Ludovic Ondiviela and Jonathan Watkins are less assured, and Tamara Rojo is ill served.’  

  7. Live Screen at Lilian Baylis Theatre, Sadler's Wells

    Georgina Harper, Wednesday 22 November 2006 — Performance: 17 Nov 06

    Apparently we’re the MTV generation and have short attention spans, so what better way to spend the evening than watching short films. If one doesn’t light your fire, another is one comes along befor… Continue Reading

  8. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 22 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘Thanks to Wayne McGregor and Christopher Wheeldon, the Royal Ballet has a pair of new ballets that shake the Opera House to its rafters. If you don’t rush to see them (or, indeed, Balanchine’s The Four Temperaments, also on this triple bill), itR… 

  9. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 22 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘The Royal Ballet’s latest programme on Friday brought two creations framing Balanchine’s 60-year-old Four Temperaments, and this latter masterpiece is an example, albeit unregarded, and a reproach to the novelties of the evening.’

  12. Royal Ballet in ‘Chroma/ The Four Temperaments/ DGV (Danse à grande vitesse) at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 20 November 2006Performance 17 - 29 Nov

    ‘Each moment seems to contain something both exciting and fearful, rather like travel itself, and Wheeldon marshals his large company with considerable aplomb. He looks more and more like the real McCoy, a choreographer of infinite promise.’ 

  13. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 20 November 2006Performance 14 - 18 Nov

    ‘Athletics are what today’s dancers are best at: cleanly characterised movement that doesn’t ask too much of the soul.’ 

  14. Rambert Dance Company in Lady into Fox/Stand & Stare/Divine Influence/Transit at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 20 November 2006Performance 14 - 18 Nov

    ‘It sounded in the advance publicity as if it could be a gem, but instead it was a muddle of intentions.’ 

  15. Protein Dance in Big Sale at The Place

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 20 November 2006Performance 7-18 Nov

    ‘Like a choreographic van Helsing, Silvestrini drives a stake through the heart of D-list celebrity, red-top prurience, overdraft culture, fashion-victimhood, CCTV surveillance, happy-slapping, mobile-phone advertising and a host of other parasite forms and watches…
