  1. Carlos Acosta in Premieres at London Coliseum

    Press Review Nadine Meisner, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 28 July - 7 August 2010

    “The high point is Russell Maliphant’s mesmerising Two, a solo originally made for Sylvie Guillem, and slightly reworked for Acosta who brings a weightier, Michelangelesque quality.” 

  2. Bolshoi Ballet in Triple Bill at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 29 & 30 July 2010

    “It starts with a bad Petrushka, pulls up with Alexei Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons, then abandons the Russian theme for the pretend-Spanish dazzle of Paquita. It’s an unbalanced evening, but there’s plenty to enjoy by the end.”  

  3. Bolshoi Ballet in Triple Bill at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 29 & 30 July 2010

    “To close the evening, the Paquita Grand Pas, that collection of late 19th-century jewels from Marius Petipa’s workshop, dazzlingly restored from notation of the period by Yuri Burlaka. Here is classical dancing as we may dream of it, each choreographic tr… 

  4. Bolshoi Ballet in Le Corsaire at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 2-5 August 2010

    “Corsaire has a bonkers plot with a “robber” theme and only so-so tunes that quickly peak your curiosity, even when the dancing is as dazzling as the Bolshoi’s. It really is fabulous. The standard of even the lowliest dancer is higher that almo… 

  5. Carlos Acosta in Premieres at London Coliseum

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 28 July - 7 August 2010

    “There’s good to be said about these works, including Acosta’s frankly erotic take on Maliphant’s choreography which others have interpreted with cool engineering precision. Acosta gives it a body builder’s muscularity, which we should pr… 

  6. Boy Blue Entertainment in Over the Edge at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 21 - 25 July 2010

    “The show isn’t 100% there yet – neither was their award-winning Pied Piper at this stage – but it’s already a lot of fun. Watch this space.” 

  7. Bolshoi Ballet in Coppélia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 22 - 24 July 2010

    “Skvortsov is excellent, with his refined technique and stylish finish, and projects just the right degree of exasperating dreaminess.” 

  8. Carlos Acosta in Premieres at London Coliseum

    Press Review Ruaridh Nicoll, Observer, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 28 July - 7 August 2010

    “It’s a tribute to the show that each element, despite being the work of a different choreographer and composer, hangs together in a loose narrative” 

  9. Carlos Acosta in Premieres at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 28 July - 7 August 2010

    “Watching Acosta dance through a digital cityscape or in slow motion video is like seeing a kid let loose in the sweet shop of contemporary art. You have to love the enthusiasm. But mixed in with Premieres’ spirit of curiosity is also naivety, and misjudgm… 

  10. Carlos Acosta in Premieres at London Coliseum

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Tuesday 3 August 2010Performance 28 July - 7 August 2010

    “there are eye-boggling digital projections from Simon Elliott. Yet it’s a simple, solo piece – Russell Maliphant’s Two – that brings the house down”
