  5. English National Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review Debra Craine, The Times, Monday 18 June 2007Performance 13 - 24 Jun 07

    In Act IV, having betrayed Odette and begging her forgiveness, he [Thomas Edur] delivered a moment so true and intimate that it took the breath away. Those few seconds with a sublime [Agnes] Oaks, performed in a barn in front of 4,300 people, at last gave meaning to t…

    ‘…there’s more tenderness than usual, and greater interaction between dancers. It makes the show more spontaneous. These characters aren’t just stuck in the rut of their own neuroses.’  

  9. Les Ballets C de la B in Import Export at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 18 June 2007Performance 12 & 13 Jun 07

    ‘He’s [Augustijnen[ at his best with pure movement, corkscrewing Szypura through a whirl of horizontal rolls and turns, or twisting the rubber-limbed Santisteva into a knot and setting him in motion like a broken toy.’

    ‘When, in the long Sixth Song (The Farewell), alone on stage, she [Bussell] bourrées backwards on pointe, hither and thither, encompassing the space at speed, you think, what a perfect thing to remember her by (as well as, on a practical level, that it’s qui… 

  15. English National Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 15 June 2007Performance 13 - 24 Jun 07
