  1. Birmingham Royal Ballet in The Sleeping Beauty at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 23 April 2010Performance 21 - 24 April 2010

    “Nao Sakuma has soft classical line and delicate phrasing, but she made a withdrawn Aurora”  

  2. Birmingham Royal Ballet in The Sleeping Beauty at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 23 April 2010Performance 21 - 24 April 2010

    “Peter Wright’s 1984 staging (largely faithful to the original Petipa text) is exemplary in the way it orchestrates the pomp and protocol of the court numbers while telling the story with maximum clarity.”  

  3. Royal Ballet in Cinderella at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Guardian, Friday 23 April 2010Performance in rep til 24 April 2010

    “With his sunny nobility and exquisite stage manners, Pennefather is the perfect match for the nervy, delicate Cojocaru.” 

  4. Mark Morris Dance Group in L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato at London Coliseum

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Guardian, Friday 23 April 2010Performance 14 - 17 April 2010

  5. Mark Morris Dance Group in L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 23 April 2010Performance 14 - 17 April 2010

    “By the time Mark Morris’s dancers ran rapidly downstage, holding hands like blithe angels, at the conclusion of this glorious piece, my jaw ached with smiling. There aren’t many dance works that are a pure joy from beginning to end, but this one is.”

  9. Royal Ballet in Cinderella at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 21 April 2010Performance in rep til 24 Nov 09

    ‘The performance was, in too many respects, a fuzzy approximation of the work Ashton made, missing the happy spirit, the elegance, of the choreography, the finesse of earlier stagings (which were not always the loveliest of things, yet did not actively offend).’  

  10. Robin Dingemans in Not What I Had in Mind at The Place

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 21 April 2010Performance 16 April 2010

    ‘It is an interesting concept, one I had imagined would result in Dingemans transforming himself into a sort of shaman, physically possessed by other people’s imaginations. Not What I Had in Mind, however, is a far more fragmented event…’

    ****‘The effort involved in what they do and the level of trust required to achieve it are beautiful to behold.’

    Press Review David Jenkins, Time Out, Tuesday 20 April 2010Performance From 23 April 2010
