    Press Review 4Neil Norman, The Stage, Wednesday 22 June 2016Performance 20 & 21 June 2016

    Press Review 3Rachel Elderkin, The Stage, Tuesday 21 June 2016Performance 14 - 18 June 2016

    Francisco Hidalgo’s solo tingles with passion as he shimmies at incredible speed. These moments of pure Flamenco are the saving grace of the show, as is Kathak dancer Ash Mukherjee, who twirls his body in a swirling storm. 

  8. English National Ballet - Swan Lake In the Round - Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review 4Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 21 June 2016Performance 1 - 12 June 2016

    Configured for the vast auditorium of the Royal Albert Hall, it features no fewer than 60 swans. When they make their first entrance, wave after wave of them, it’s awesome. To see them move and breathe as one is also profoundly touching.

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Wednesday 15 June 2016Performance 28 May - 11 June 2016

    Obsidian Tear is full of jumps and curves and classical poise, its all-male cast moving with muscular fluidity, like balletic samurai, to the swell and retreat of Esa-Pekka Salonen’s score.
