  1. Stuttgart Ballet in Romeo & Juliet at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 27 March 2008Performance 25 Mar 08

    ‘… the presence of Cranko’s muse, and one of the great Juliets – Marcia Haydée. Now 70, she plays Lady Capulet with great conviction. Her grief at Tylbalt’s death, rending her clothes as she appeals for sympathy, was the moment when I forgo… 

  2. Stuttgart Ballet in Romeo & Juliet at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 27 March 2008Performance 25 Mar 08

    ‘This first night was lively but lightweight, lacking intensity.’  

  3. Stuttgart Ballet in Romeo & Juliet at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 27 March 2008Performance 25 Mar 08

    ‘Cranko’s handling of the narrative is more traditional than MacMillan’s, and more articulate.’  

  4. Stuttgart Ballet in Romeo & Juliet at London Coliseum

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Thursday 27 March 2008Performance 25 Mar 08

    ‘It’s in the thrilling ensemble work of the Stuttgart company that Cranko’s ballet shines.’  

  5. Review: Stuttgart Ballet in Romeo & Juliet at London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Thursday 27 March 2008 — Performance: 25 Mar 08

    Regular ballet-goers could be heard playing a peculiar game of spot the difference at this opening night. London ballet audiences have an intimate knowledge of Kenneth MacMillan’s ‘Romeo and Juliet&#… Continue Reading

  6. New York City Ballet in Programme 4: Ballet and Broadway at London Coliseum

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance 19, 20, 22 Mar 08

    ‘ [Daniel] Ulbricht is that rare bird, a virtuoso who is also a wit. (He showed this in Robbins’ Four Seasons .) Nothing seems impossible in matter of brilliancy of step: he has soaring elevation and a natural ballon, but as welcome as these is his exact p… 

  7. New York City Ballet in Programme 3: Four Voices at London Coliseum

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance 18, 20, 21 Mar 08

    ‘The work calls for a profound response from the NYCB dancers and gets it, the cursive sweep of Ratmansky’s choreography drawing existential despair from Rebecca Krohn, flickering will-o’-the-wisp optimism from Rachel Rutherford, and bittersweet accepta… 

  8. Royal Ballet in The Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance Mar 08

    ‘Rojo’s reading of the role of Aurora is at once restrained and spectacular. She is so precisely centred that she seems supported on a current of air, and this gives her pirouettes and her ‘Rose Adagio’ balances an air of pensive rapture.’ 

  9. New York City Ballet in Programme 4: Ballet and Broadway at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance 19, 20, 22 Mar 08

    ‘Albert Evans moves with the ironic swagger of a true cowboy and Teresa Reichlen – one of the most exciting dancers of this season – runs away with the choreography. With her innocent oval face and long limbs, Reichlen has the gift of making extremes… 

  10. New York City Ballet in Programme 3: Four Voices at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance 18, 20, 21 Mar 08

    ‘Stylistically, the evening makes for a pleasurable mix. Yet, with work that looks back, variously, to a Richard Rodgers musical, to the rituals of Russian orthodoxy and to traditional Russian dance, it is not a programme that signals either a clear future direc… 

  11. News: Russell Maliphant

    Tuesday 25 March 2008

    Laura Barnett meets Russell Maliphant, he explains that the greatest threat to dance today is “Funding cuts. If dancers and choreographers can’t afford to sustain their lifestyles, then they can̵… Continue Reading

  13. New York City Ballet in Programme 3: Four Voices at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance 18, 20, 21 Mar 08

    “Only Alexei Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons, a cleverly balletic mix of broad humour and melancholy, had any substance. Wendy Whelan was still the most impressive dancer on display.” 

  14. New York City Ballet in Programme 4: Ballet and Broadway at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance 19, 20, 22 Mar 08

    “Lovely, creamy Ashley Bouder and cheeky Daniel Ulbricht threw off a performance of Balanchine’s Neopolitan-tinged Tarantella of astonishing exuberance and precision; he jumped with such brio that he broke his tambourine; she turned pirouettes with graceful, … 

  15. New York City Ballet in Programme 4: Ballet and Broadway at London Coliseum

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 25 March 2008Performance 19, 20, 22 Mar 08

    “It was hard, at times, not to whoop aloud in response to the joyous lines of spinning saloon molls and leaping cowboys, stetsons in hand, or to whistle Albert Evans’s rolling-gaited sheriff, coolly tongue-in-cheek. But ballet audiences are impeccably behaved…
