  9. Diaghilev Season in Les Saisons Russes du XXI Siecle at London Coliseum

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 18 April 2011Performance 12 - 17 April 2011

    ‘You can understand why the director of the Kremlin Ballet might hanker to revive lost gems from the early years of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, Russia having missed out on the whole shebang first time round. But it takes more than a musical score and a rough … 

  10. Diaghilev Season in Les Saisons Russes du XXI Siecle at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 18 April 2011Performance 10 - 16 April 2011

    ‘The trouble is that this grappling for territory, these obsessive rituals go on for ever. I can see that the movement is sometimes wonderful – the final sequence when the women sit and move in unison to Mozart is very striking – but it is also punis… 

  14. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's Rosas in Early Works at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 18 April 2011Performance 10 - 16 April 2011
