    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Seven Magazine, Telegraph, Friday 21 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 Sep 2012

    Mozart is notoriously dance-resistant but Balanchine doesn’t merely incarnate the score, he links arms with it and takes it around the block.

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 20 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    The evening closes with another fine work from Christopher Wheeldon. Within the Golden Hour is set to a delirious stream of music by Vivaldi and Ezio Bosso, its choreography a brilliant interplay of surface shimmer and deep structure.

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 20 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    in Programme C, RAkU is a curious little Japanese-influenced melodrama, set to a by turns terrific and terrible score, that improves the more the ravishingly coiled Yuan Yuan Tan is allowed to dance.  

  6. San Francisco Ballet -Programme B -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Thursday 20 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    Ghosts is the no-contest standout of San Francisco Ballet’s Programme B. Bold, original and astonishingly atmospheric, this pulls the moonlit-glade trope of 19th-century ballet lyrically into the 21st century, a post-apocalyptic meeting of white-clad lost souls despe…

    Germaine Cheng, Tuesday 18 September 2012 — Performance: 14 - 23 September 2012

  12. San Francisco Ballet - Programme A

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 17 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 Sep 2012

    San Francisco Ballet are one of the world’s most generous and resourceful promoters of new work. But by opening their (long overdue) UK season with a classic by Balanchine they also acknowledge the creative source and touchstone of their repertory.  

  13. HeadSpaceDance at Linbury Studio Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 17 September 2012Performance 7 - 111 September 2012

    Headspace may have a name like a new age psychotherapy practice, but their work comes straight from the heart.  

  14. San Francisco Ballet - Programme A

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 17 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 Sep 2012

    Edwaard Liang offers up “Symphonic Dances”, a confusion of hot colours, cool emotions, overwrought music and choreography that doesn’t really DO anything (bar a fair amount of wafting about). The problem is his score  

  15. San Francisco Ballet -Programme B -Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 17 September 2012Performance 14 - 23 September 2012

    Trio, Tomasson’s realisation of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence, was well made, exactly what one might expect given Tomasson’s former identity as a superb Balanchine dancer.
