  1. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre / ENO in The Rite of Spring at London Coliseum

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Monday 9 November 2009Performance in rep til 28 Nov 09

    ‘The sacrificial dance is performed — in a state of exaltation — by Daphne Strothmann’s Chosen One, but it plays out against all expectation. In a stunning finale, the arrival of spring turns out to be a victory in more ways than one.’  

  2. Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre / ENO in The Rite of Spring at London Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 9 November 2009Performance in rep til 28 Nov 09

    ‘Keegan-Dolan’s mass ensembles may be earthed in Stravinsky’s clamorous Russian rhythms, but they are also vividly Irish: raw boned, aggressive, with a drunken lurch and a jig.’

  5. Royal Ballet in Agon / Sphinx / Limen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 6 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    ‘I’m not entirely convinced that Sphinx, by the late American choreographer Glen Tetley, is that much of a ballet. It’s wildly OTT, a camply perfumed crescendo of Ferrero-Rocher design, portentous music (by Martinu) and shamelessly extravagant steps.’  

  6. Rambert Dance Company in Tread Softly/ Carnival of the Animals/ The Comedy of Change at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 6 November 2009Performance 3 - 7 Nov 09

    ‘Baldwin is inventive in shaping dance, but the sum effect here is less than that of its parts.’  

  7. Rambert Dance Company in Tread Softly/ Carnival of the Animals/ The Comedy of Change at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Friday 6 November 2009Performance 3 - 7 Nov 09

    ‘The Comedy of Change… has much going for it: ambition (again attempting to fuse science and dance, Baldwin this time looks to Darwin); slick, monochromatic design, complete with creepy chrysalises and costumes that let the dancers by turn melt into the sh… 

  8. Royal Ballet in Agon / Sphinx / Limen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 6 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    ‘The ballet’s real shape and purpose reside in its duets; most notably, the one for Eric Underwood and Sarah Lamb, in which the dance resonates with unmistakeable sexual attraction.’

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Thursday 5 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    ‘McGregor is the Royal’s resident choreographer and until now we’ve know him for his highly articulated, almost insect-like movement vocabulary. In Limen he includes a softening line and sensuous poise.’

    Press Review Ismene Brown, ArtsDesk, Thursday 5 November 2009Performance in rep til 18 Nov 09

    ‘Extraordinary lives dancers lead at Covent Garden – in a single day rushing between studios to rehearse the tortured, introspective Mayerling, the pristine classicism of The Sleeping Beauty, the off-centre acrobatics of Balanchine’s Agon and the static…
