  1. Phoenix Dance Theatre in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 11 June 2007Performance 1-2 June 07

    ‘Paseillo is pure de Frutos. Set to a scratchy record of Mozart intercut with A Hawaiian Farewell, this takes the form of a battle of the sexes.’ 

  2. Royal Ballet in Song of the Earth, Checkmate, Symphonic Variations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 11 June 2007Performance 2-8 Jun 07

    ‘Bussell is beautiful in the piece, as she always has been, carried weightlessly on the music’s austere symphonic currents and inscribing MacMillan’s steps with serene gravity.’ 

  3. Phoenix Dance Theatre in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 11 June 2007Performance 1-2 June 07

    ‘The works are quite a mixture, strong, messy or intriguing by turns. The company dances with power and conviction.’  

  4. Phoenix Dance Theatre in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 11 June 2007Performance 1-2 June 07

    ‘Just as De Frutos subverted Stravinsky, so now he does with Mozart, calling out the lush swoonings and swellings of the choral sound to serve his purpose. The result is some of the loveliest, most joyous choreography he has produced.’ 

  5. Royal Ballet in Song of the Earth, Checkmate, Symphonic Variations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 8 June 2007Performance 2-8 June 07

    ‘It is the best of farewells, because the truest to Bussell’s gifts, and we shall remember her like this: beautiful, expressive, a generous artist. She had the advantage of a magnificent performance of the Man from Gary Avis, dancing as always from the centre… 

  6. Northern Ballet Theatre in The Three Musketeers at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Elena Seymenliyska, Telegraph, Friday 8 June 2007Performance 5-9 June 07

    ‘Patrick Howell makes a dashing D’Artagnan, and his caped colleagues are equally swoonsome, the four of them with a lovely length of limb and a jaunty spring in their step. ‘ 

  7. Phoenix Dance Theatre in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Giannandrea Poesio, The Spectator, Friday 8 June 2007Performance 1-2 June 07

    ‘De Frutos has a unique way of reading the music to derive intriguing and thought-provoking narratives from any score he deals with. ‘ 

  8. Royal Ballet in Song of the Earth, Checkmate, Symphonic Variations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Giannandrea Poesio, The Spectator, Friday 8 June 2007Performance 2-8 June 07

    ‘with the exception of Sarah Lamb, the other five dancers, Rupert Pennefather, Lauren Cuthbertson, José Martin, Isabel McMeekan and Yohei Sasaki, projected very little and often looked out of synch.’ 

  9. Kenneth Tharp today & in Arnie Zane's 'Freedom of Information' in 1992

  10. Moving Africa 3 in Umthombi / Impro-Vise_2 at Barbican

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Friday 8 June 2007Performance 4-9 June 07

    ‘An evocation of both nature and the master-apprentice relationship, this impressive dance is about the dust the men’s feet raise and the look in their eyes of mutual learning.’  

  11. News: Ballet in Britain is thriving?

    Wednesday 6 June 2007

    ‘As Bussell leaves ballet, still at the height of her extraordinary powers, she leaves a revitalised Royal Ballet and a British dance scene at a moment of change and challenge.’ Read more of Zoe Ande… Continue Reading

  12. Royal Ballet in Song of the Earth, Checkmate, Symphonic Variations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 6 June 2007Performance 2-8 June 07

    ‘If the performance by the second cast was anything to go by, we are sabotaging our balletic heritage. Song of the Earth was superbly done, but Checkmate suffered from under- playing and Symphonic Variations looked muddled.’ 

  13. Royal Ballet in Song of the Earth, Checkmate, Symphonic Variations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 6 June 2007Performance 2-8 June 07

    ‘So ravishing is her performance, so voluptuous her long limbs, that the idea of retirement beggars belief.’  

  14. Review: Northern Ballet Theatre in The Three Musketeers at Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Wednesday 6 June 2007— Performance: 5 - 9 Jun 07

    This is great fun! *The Three Musketeers* is such a rip-roaringly good story that it doesn’t surprise me to learn that the Royal Ballet’s David Drew saw its potential as a scenario for dance some 30 … Continue Reading

  15. Phoenix Dance Theatre in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 5 June 2007Performance 1-2 June 07

    ‘In pure movement terms, it [Paseillo] may be De Frutos’s loveliest work, with classically shaped phrases that twine harmoniously around Mozart. Yet built into the dancing is a language of sighing, whispering, swaying sensuality, a story of fevered passion…
