  1. Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 26 September 2011Performance 20 Sep - 5 Oct 2011

    ‘I’ve always found Rubies easier to admire than to love, especially when framed by Jean-Marc Puissant’s overbearing deco set. But I was won over by Sarah Lamb and Steven McRae. She’s a spiffy American beauty, straight out of the pages of Scott Fit… 

  2. Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 26 September 2011Performance 20 Sep - 5 Oct 2011

    ‘The Royal Ballet season opened with some serious dazzle.Created in 1967, Balanchine’s Jewels is an evening of plotless ballets, linked by the theme of precious stones. Handsomely staged by Elyse Borne and Patricia Neary, it puts plenty of the company̵…

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 26 September 2011Performance 21 September 2011

  4. ROH2 - Arthur Pita in The Metamorphosis at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Louise Levene , Sunday Telegraph, Monday 26 September 2011Performance 19 - 24 September 2011

    ‘Many narratives are diminished by choreographic treatment but Metamorphosis makes perfect physical theatre. You can trace Matthew Bourne’s influence in the no-nonsense storytelling and characterisation and in the odd flashes of humour.’ 

  5. ROH2 - Arthur Pita in The Metamorphosis at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 26 September 2011Performance 19 - 24 September 2011

    ‘Watson’s freakish performance is a physical tour de force, but what elevates his reading of Samsa is, paradoxically, its humanity. His broken attitudes and haunted eyes excite our compassion, and never more so than when his family manically attempt to carry … 

  6. ROH2 - Arthur Pita in The Metamorphosis at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 26 September 2011Performance 19 - 24 September 2011

    ‘It is terrifying, heart-tearing, piteous. And glorious. It must, must be seen. It must, must be filmed.’  

  7. ROH2 - Arthur Pita in The Metamorphosis at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 26 September 2011Performance 19 - 24 September 2011

    ‘With work, the more unruly elements of this bold effort could come into focus: it’s too good an idea to waste.’

    Sam Gauntlett, Friday 23 September 2011 — Performance: 21 September 2011

    A shaft of light cuts through dark, then a sharp, reverberating blast and heavy clunk of steel brings four marching figures, who stand, hands clasped behind. A front-facing naked man obeys their barked instructi… Continue Reading

  13. ROH2 - Arthur Pita in The Metamorphosis at Linbury Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 23 September 2011Performance 19 - 24 September 2011

    “Watson is impressive, as is the rest of the cast who do less dancing – costume and gesture convey their character, which is to casually crush the tragic Gregor.”
