  1. Companhia de Dança Deborah Colker - Tatyana

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Sunday 3 February 2013Performance 31 January - 9 February 2013

    Where Act 1 in both the opera and the ballet is narrative-heavy, Colker’s version is narrative-lite, to the extent that you can’t know what’s going on unless you’ve read the synopsis.  

  2. Royal Ballet - Onegin - Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Saturday 2 February 2013Performance 19, 22, 23, 25, 26, 30, 31 Jan, 1 Feb 2013

    Her journey as Tatiana – from bookish girl, to impassioned lover, to self-denying woman – was a revelation. This progression is charted through a series of duets, and in each it was the detail of Nuñez’s dancing that was so wonderful

    Press Review 4Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 1 February 2013Performance 30 Jan - 24 Feb 2013

    The cast do what they do with most eager abandon and dizzying, slashing legs and feet. The five couples are gifted, seriously adept, and beguilingly able to involve themselves in the arbitrary confrontations, the sexually charged poses and lightning-flash dramas of the tango.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 1 February 2013Performance 31 January - 9 February 2013

    But Colker is at her inventive best as she starts to mine its dramatic potential. An early love scene has four radiant Olgas dancing powerfully with one Lensky, until the numbers reverse and we’re sensing a very different Olga, a vulnerable girl being cherished b…

    Press Review 2Zoe Anderson, Independent, Friday 1 February 2013Performance 31 January - 9 February 2013

    Colker may be aiming for sensuality, but she turns her heroine into a puppet. The doubled images and acrobatic steps tell us less about Tatyana, not more.

    Graham Watts, Friday 1 February 2013 — Performance: 31 January - 9 February 2013

    There is a unique flavour to Colker's choreography, which is sensual, visually-appealing and highly charged with emotion. Continue Reading
