    ‘This is a fantastically enjoyable evening. The Royal Ballet puts on its best frock and celebrates its 75th birthday in exhilarating style – and, in so doing, reclaims its history, taking it out of the box marked “delicate” and transforming it int…

  4. Royal Ballet in The Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 6 June 2006Performance 15 May-3 Jun

    “Marianela Nuñez, sunlit, soaring through the dance, phrasing like an angel, adorably musical, an Aurora among the finest the Royal Ballet has shown.”

  6. Various in In Good Company at Linbury Theatre at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Monday 5 June 2006Performance

    ‘Part of the Royal Ballet’s 75th anniversary celebrations, In Good Company comprises six short works performed by four companies who all, in some sort, owe their existence to Dame Ninette de Valois. The Royal and Birmingham Royal Ballet were her creations.’ 

  7. Bock and Vincenzi in Here, As If They Hadn't Been, As If They Are Not at Laban

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 5 June 2006Performance 30 & 31 May

    ‘We are just yards from the performers but they are unreachable, in another dimension. To be honest, it’s as if they’re dead. And as the piece ends, in a roaring darkness, it’s as if we finally join them. And you’d be amazed at just what a b…

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 5 June 2006Performance 31 May - 11 June

    ‘An iconic figure in Japan, where he is also a film star, 28-year-old Ebizo is kabuki’s Nureyev, revitalising a traditional and unfashionable art form.’ 

  10. English National Ballet in The Canterville Ghost at New Wimbledon Theatre

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 5 June 2006Performance

    ‘Tuckett’s ballet is packed with dancing; on that score, you get your money’s worth.’ 

  11. Tango por Dos in La Historia at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Gavin Roebuck, The Stage, Friday 2 June 2006Performance

    ‘The programme is a mix of slow sophisticated eroticism with moments of significant stillness between a couple and also elements of a more Vegas-style ensemble show.’ 

  12. Aurélia Thierrée & company in Aurélia's Oratorio at Lyric, Hammersmith

    Press Review Alice Jones, Independent, Friday 2 June 2006Performance

    ‘Aurélia’s Oratorio is a 70-minute surreal spectacle, combining physical theatre, comedy, magic and dance, all set to a quirky soundtrack of Gallic crooning, Gypsy jazz rhythms and jaunty accordions.’  

  13. Kabuki in Fuji Musume /Kasane at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 2 June 2006Performance 31 May - 11 June

    In the poses of Kabuki style, in the formalities of step and action that strip away everything save the central truth of a situation, Ebizo makes a commanding figure – fury, devious guilt, passion, all are there – as exponent of his family’s signature a… 

  14. Kabuki in Fuji Musume /Kasane at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Charles Spenser, Telegraph, Friday 2 June 2006Performance 31 May - 11 June

    ‘There’s no doubt that there is something rich and strange about the double-bill of kabuki performances now on offer at Sadler’s Wells, but whether they are rich, strange and enjoyable is another matter.’ 

  15. Kabuki in Fuji Musume /Kasane at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 2 June 2006Performance 31 May - 11 June

    ‘The Kabuki play Kasane is a welter of highly stylised violence, both delicate and gory.’
