    Royal Ballet in Giselle at Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Tuesday 7 April 2009 — Performance: 6 Apr - 26 May 09

    It’s always nice to welcome back an old friend; and they don’t come any older than Giselle. Born in 1841, this most Romantic of all ballets has been through cycles of innovation, adulation, reform an… Continue Reading

  5. Royal Opera & Royal Ballet in Dido & Aeneas / Acis & Galatea at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 31 Mar - 20 Apr 09

    ‘Edward Watson (Acis) is, as always, gripping, as a McGregor interpreter par excellence, with his wonderful suppleness and his ability, it appears, to turn himself inside out.’ 

  6. Royal Opera & Royal Ballet in Dido & Aeneas / Acis & Galatea at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 31 Mar - 20 Apr 09

    ‘His defining idea is to give each of the singing characters an alter ego in dance, reflecting their inner desires and motives. Visual clarity is achieved by putting the dancers in nude body stockings, which startlingly reveal every rib, sinew and buttock dimple (t… 

  7. American Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at London Coliseum

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 25 - 31 Mar 09

    ‘Swan Lake demonstrated a company brimming with talent at all levels, and Kevin McKenzie’s production (from 2000) is ultra-dance-packed.’ 

  8. American Ballet Theatre in Le Corsaire at London Coliseum

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 2 - 4 Apr 09

    ‘Judging by the delighted roar, it was clear that a good portion of the audience had no idea that ballet could be this much fun.’ 

  9. American Ballet Theatre in Le Corsaire at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 2 - 4 Apr 09

    ‘The choreography, here staged by Anna-Marie Holmes after Petipa and Sergueyev, is full of dance fireworks: lots of whiz-bang, not much depth. It’s a series of set-pieces and frothing mime scenes, from a pirates’ grotto to a vision scene with a real … 

  10. American Ballet Theatre in Le Corsaire at London Coliseum

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 2 - 4 Apr 09

    ‘What we see with ABT is decrepit scenery, seriously unflattering costuming and talented artists tearing their hearts out to convince us that what they are doing is worthwhile – beyond the obvious appeals for applause as yet more pirouettes and fouettés and … 

  11. American Ballet Theatre in Le Corsaire at London Coliseum

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 2 - 4 Apr 09

    ‘A silly tale of pirates, pashas, damsels in distress and Turkish slave traders (loosely based on Byron), it unfolds like a handsome cartoon.’  

  12. American Ballet Theatre in Le Corsaire at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 2 - 4 Apr 09

    ‘If score cards were allowed in ballet, some perfect 10s would have been handed out to the opening cast of American Ballet Theatre’s Corsaire.’  

  13. Tavaziva Dance in Heart of Darkness at The Place

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 31 Mar 09

    ‘“My Friend Robert” is a forceful piece, but in his anger the choreographer has dispensed with all light and shade.’ 

  14. NoFit State in Tabu at Roundhouse

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 28 Mar - 19 Apr 09

    ‘There’s a notional plot, but the experience is really about immersion in an alternative world, at once dreamy and uncompromisingly physical, and the eccentric charm of the performers. European tour dates include Brighton and Cardiff. Catch them if you can.’ 

  15. NoFit State in Tabu at Roundhouse

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 6 April 2009Performance 28 Mar - 19 Apr 09

    ‘NoFit State Circus could change all this. On both circus skills and story-lines, the Cardiff-based company is not in the same league as the international competition, yet they have energy and style, and with a tighter director this show could soar.’
