  1. Mariinsky Ballet - Swan Lake - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Tuesday 5 August 2014Performance 1 - 14 August 2014

    The dual nature of the lead ballerina role, yearning swan-woman Odette and manipulative vamp Odile, is the deepest mystery of all. Perhaps the impossibility of reconciling these elements, of finally locating the source of Swan Lake’s power, is what keeps us hooked.

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Tuesday 5 August 2014Performance 1 - 14 August 2014

    Her [Uliana Lopatkina] soft arms, graceful back and delicate feet make each pose, every attitude, both a glorious picture and a sentence in the story of her enchantment.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 5 August 2014Performance 1 - 14 August 2014

    …this is a Swan Lake that allows the lyric sweep of Tchaikovsky’s music and the poetic nuances of the Petipa-Ivanov choreography to take centre stage.

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, Daily Express, Friday 1 August 2014Performance 28 - 31 July 2014

    Sometimes it is hard to discern the dance amid the acres of pageantry, spectacle, crowd scenes and milling about that seem to comprise more than 50 percent of the work. When we do get a solo or a pas de deux it is like a breath of fresh air.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 1 August 2014Performance 29 July - 2 August 2014

    He slowly stretches and torques his body while his shadow grows and multiplies behind him. It’s reminiscent of an Antony Gormley sculpture; the body reduced to pure proportions, repeated, expanded and revealed, and it’s moving in its profound simplicity. 

  9. Sylvie Guillem & Russell Maliphant - PUSH - London Coliseum

    Press Review 5Neil Norman, The Stage, Friday 1 August 2014Performance 29 July - 2 August 2014

    Created on a skeleton of balance, poise and the kind of mutual trust required by trapeze artists, it suggests the intimate dialogue between a long-married couple with all the complexities and subtleties of their history. At times, it appears to be conducted under water, …

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Financial Times, Friday 1 August 2014Performance 29 July - 2 August 2014

    The four-part programme… gets off to an attractive start with Solo, in which Guillem, a vision in beaded white chiffon pyjamas and red Beatle wig, invokes the ghosts of her Kitri and Carmen as she dances to Carlos Montoya’s guitar.

    Press Review 5Rachel Ward, Telegraph, Friday 1 August 2014Performance 29 July - 2 August 2014

    The pair create a fluid architecture as their bodies cascade over one another’s with a haunting connection. Each phrase is intercut by blackouts, which begin with Guillem perched on Maliphant’s shoulders.

  14. Mariinsky Ballet - Romeo and Juliet - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 30 July 2014Performance 28 - 31 July 2014

    Yuri Smekalov’s domineering Tybalt; Alexander Sergeyev’s Mercutio, had bright dramatic fire, and my eye was held by the dancing of Nadezhda Batoeva as Juliet’s friend and by Vasily Tkachenko’s troubadour. 

  15. Mariinsky Ballet - Romeo and Juliet - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 30 July 2014Performance 28 - 31 July 2014

    Vladimir Ponomarev’s Lord Capulet staggers through the action in full-on ham mode, every movement overwrought and unlikely. There are heavy-handed, Soviet-friendly class issues, too. Romeo and his friends flirt respectfully with hard-working tavern girls; Tybalt, being…
