  1. Royal Ballet in Ondine at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 2 December 2008Performance 29 Nov - 6 Dec 08

    They [Tamara Rojo & Edward Watson] were cracking together as well, by turns lustful and cautious, tender and predatory, callous and concerned – and Ricardo Cervera’s fearsomely elemental sea-god, Tirrenio, deserves a mention too. 

  2. Matthew Bourne's 'Edward Scissorhands' 2 Dec.08 - 18 Jan.09.

  3. Royal Ballet in Ondine at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 2 December 2008Performance 29 Nov - 6 Dec 08

    ‘As for Ashton’s own contribution, Ondine isn’t up there with his greatest work – it’s no Fille mal gardée or Symphonic Variations – but it’s lovely all the same.’  

  4. Royal Ballet in Ondine at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Tuesday 2 December 2008Performance 29 Nov - 6 Dec 08

    ‘Lila de Nobili’s painterly designs look old-fashioned and oppressive, though Act II’s superb shipwreck is a masterpiece of low-tech stage engineering. But Ashton is Ashton and who can argue with the chance to see some of his most deliciously feminin… 

  5. Royal Ballet in Ondine at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 1 December 2008Performance 29 Nov - 6 Dec 08

    ‘The opening solo for Ondine herself (Tamara Rojo on opening night) is filigree mystery. The water sprite discovers her shadow, and then the nobleman Palemon (Edward Watson), and her delight in the mortal realm is palpable.’  

  6. Savion Glover in Bare Soundz at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 1 December 2008Performance 26 - 29 Nov 08

    ‘It’s dance for the ears, not the eyes.’ 

  7. Savion Glover in Bare Soundz at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 1 December 2008Performance 26 - 29 Nov 08

    ‘Flanked by fellow dancers Marshall Davis Jr and Maurice Chestnut, Glover’s return concert at Sadler’s Wells is a triumph of stamina, flair and classy, unpretentious showmanship.’  

  8. Australian Dance Theatre in G at Queen Elizabeth Hall, Soutbank Centre

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 1 December 2008Performance 28 & 29 Nov 08

    ‘Mostly, the frenetic conviction of G’s choreography seems to be in service to itself, with any allusion to Giselle merely a kind of conceptual accessory.’

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 1 December 2008Performance 28 & 29 Nov 08

    ‘Stewart requires his cast to do terrifying things: crash-land out of flying jetés on to their knees, wrench their limbs into grotesque distortions. But G is not all about the acrobatics.’

    Graham Watts, Monday 1 December 2008 — Performance: 28 & 29 Nov 08

    That the ‘G’ of this title refers to the heroine of *Giselle* _can only be deduced from the scrolling narrative that accompanied this hour-long work, flashing across a giant LED screen above the stag… Continue Reading
