  1. Bolshoi Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    The never-ending soloists — alluring gypsies, back-bending flamenco dancers, a sprightly Cupid — are reliably excellent, and the show is best in full fiesta mode, when Fadeyechev throws everything at it

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    Olga Smirnova, who danced Kitri on opening night, is the Bolshoi’s rising star. Tall and long-limbed, trained in the refined St Petersburg school, she’s a very elegant dancer.

    In fact, no soloist put a foot wrong all evening – particularly high marks, too, for those three Dryads – while the corps were marvellously boisterous in the Act I town square, lyricism itself in the Act II vision scene, and always acting as a single organism.

    Particularly fine in the secondary roles are Vera Borisenkova, mysterious and haughty in the Spanish Dance, and Anna Antropova, lusciously musical and melodramatic in the Gypsy Dance.

  6. Australian Ballet - Cinderella - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    . . . his composure is pricked by Cinderella (Leanne Stojmenov), the subtle softness of her dancing marking her out against the quirky moves of everyone else.

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    Having shed her Bernadette-like gear for a sparkly dress, Leanne Stojmenov reveals a thrilling and understated technique in her solos and the pas de deux.

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    Still, if Cinderella’s solos often carry on a little too long, they are, in the main, undeniably attractive and emotionally communicative pieces of neoclassical choreography, and Leanne Stojmenov performs them very prettily indeed.

    Press Review 4David Jays, Guardian, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    In a busy production, Cinderella herself can seem a wallflower, but Ratmansky makes her an original, resilient heroine.

    Graham Watts, Friday 22 July 2016 — Performance: 20 - 23 July 2016

    The dancers of the Australian Ballet are a delight. They are universally light and airy; technically strong; lyrically expressive; and apparently inexhaustible. Leanne Stojmenov is a delightful Cinderella... Continue Reading

  12. Australian Ballet - Swan Lake - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 18 July 2016Performance 13 - 16 July 2016

    The wafting arms and silky precision of the corps de ballet is one of work’s significant features, along with the principals who colour their technique with expressive character.

    Press Review 2Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 18 July 2016Performance 13 - 16 July 2016

    Adam Bull is more capable than charismatic as Siegfried, but Amber Scott is a lyrical and very touching Odette, and Dimity Azoury makes an interesting journey as the Baroness 

  14. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker - Work/Travail/Arbei - Tate Modern

    Press Review 2Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 18 July 2016Performance 8 - 10 July 2016

    De Keersmaeker’s choreography – slow sways, shuffles, swinging turns, pounding runs – is calculatedly unshowy, and a lot less interesting than the music.
