  1. Rocio Molina -Danzaora - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Friday 22 March 2013Performance 19 March 2013

    I have been fortunate to see every great male dancer of my time: such stars of the Ballets Russes as Massine, Lifar and Dolin, and leading danseurs of the companies in St Petersburg and Moscow and of western ballet during the past half century. None, with the exception…

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 19 March 2013Performance 15-16 March 2013
