  1. Royal Ballet - Frankenstein - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    As a whole, Frankenstein shows impressive confidence. Scarlett is assured in his use of a large cast, and there are beautifully shaped dances.  

  2. Royal Ballet - Frankenstein - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 1Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    Liam Scarlett is a talented abstract, neoclassical choreographer, but his Frankenstein is the least enjoyable full-evening work I have ever seen the Royal Ballet perform. 

  3. Royal Ballet - Frankenstein - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    In Liam Scarlett’s new Frankenstein for the Royal Ballet, it’s not the monster who gets top billing. Instead, Victor Frankenstein (Federico Bonelli) and his fiancée Elizabeth (Laura Morera) are at the centre of the story. 

  4. Royal Ballet - Frankenstein - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 6 May 2016Performance 4 - 27 May 2016

    There’s a very powerful work at the heart of this ballet, yet Scarlett needs to cut and cut again to set it free. And given the amount of money that was spent on the production, the Royal should insist that he does.

    Graham Watts, Thursday 5 May 2016 — Performance: 4 - 27 May 2016

  8. Breakin' Convention '16 - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 4 May 2016Performance 30 April - 2 May 2016

    Breakin’ Convention, now in its 13th year, is one of the great success stories of dance venue Sadler’s Wells.

    Press Review 4Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 4 May 2016Performance 30 April - 2 May 2016

    With a bounce in their steps and looks of mischief, they twizzle into pretzels, play amazing tricks with floating hats and turn their limbs into skipping ropes and Hula Hoops. 

  10. Pablo Bronstein - Historical Dances in An Antique Setting - Tate Britain

    Press Review Laura Cumming, Observer, Wednesday 4 May 2016Performance 26 April - 9 October 2016

    This is also the era of voguing, and sure enough the dancers are going through the poses with mannered solemnity. But they are also imitating the sprezzatura of the Renaissance aristocrat who has read Castiglione’s famous The Book of the Courtier.

    Josephine Leask, Friday 29 April 2016 — Performance: 26 April - 9 October 2016

    What’s effective about the dance element in Bronstein’s installation is that live bodies not only bring the images to life and but also emphasise the social codes and style of his favoured Baroque period.  Continue Reading
