    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 28 March 2011Performance 22 - 26 March 2011

    ‘Like a woman who takes a young lover (Colette’s Chéri the best literary account of this happy situation), Klimentová has responded to the youthful, even innocent presence of the 20-year-old Muntagirov with dancing of remarkable wisdom, assurance and gra…

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 23 March 2011Performance 17 - 26 March 2011

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 23 March 2011Performance 17 - 26 March 2011

    ‘This being Hans Christian Andersen, all ends well, but you’ll struggle to keep track without reading the programme. De Frutos has choreographed not so much a ballet as a cabaret-come-danced opera, with speech, spoofs, satire, dance and theatrical wackines… 

  8. Pet Shop Boys/Javier De Frutos in The Most Incredible Thing at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 23 March 2011Performance 17 - 26 March 2011

    ‘Sometimes things just don’t work. The Pet Shop Boys, the world’s favourite electronica duo, have launched into ballet, starting at the deep end with a three-act narrative work. It’s an ambitious, sometimes clever project, fatally undermined by…

    ‘I defy anyone to be bored by this phantasmagorical new collaboration between the Pet Shop Boys and Javier De Frutos. Aptly for this particular tale, synth-pop’s wryest and most enduring exponents and the impish dancer-turned-choreographer have sent creati…
