    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 20 April 2010Performance 14 - 17 April 2010

    ‘It doesn’t get better than this. L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato, Mark Morris’s masterpiece, is back in Britain after more than a decade. It’s still glorious: one of the finest works of 20th-century dance, and one of the most love… 

  2. Compagnie XY in Le Grand C at Roundhouse

    Press Review Lyn Gardner , Guardian, Tuesday 20 April 2010Performance 17 - 24 April 2010

    ‘The apparent ordinariness of this 70-minute show is part of its appeal, because its very lack of showmanship and pizzazz allows it to constantly surprise you: earthbound women suddenly soar through the air like swooping swallows; two girls in red dresses, each …

  5. Dancing on Ice at O2 Arena & touring

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 19 April 2010Performance April 2010

    ‘What’s drawn me back isn’t a duplication of the cosy, competitive trappings available on the telly. More simply it’s the pleasure to be had in seeing people in glittery gear gliding about on a big expanse of frozen water.’ 

  6. Royal Ballet in Cinderella at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 19 April 2010Performance in rep til 24 April 2010

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 19 April 2010Performance 14 - 17 April 2010

    ‘Morris is, at once, the most sophisticated and the most innocent of dance-makers: he hears music, finds a way to make it flesh, and shows us this, a disarming simplicity masking a goldsmith’s mastery.’

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Monday 19 April 2010Performance 13 & 14 April 2010

    ‘Missen and Turner are fearless dancers and acute observers of human behaviour.’
