  11. Mariinsky Ballet - The Firebird / Marguerite and Armand / Concerto DSCH - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Monday 18 August 2014Performance 10 - 12 August 2014

    Alexei Ratmansky’s Concerto DSCH is a joyful finale to the Mariinsky Ballet’s triple bill, bubbling over with invention and fabulous dancing.

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 15 August 2014Performance 11 - 12 August 2014

    A trio of showoffs wind themselves in and out of the action; a loving couple dance wistfully. On Monday, the casting was just spot-on, with the prodigious Kimin Kim fizzing and flying, and Nadezhda Batoeva and Filipp Stepin in spiky, spirited support.

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 15 August 2014Performance 11 - 12 August 2014

    …the imprisoned cavaliers embalmed in a stone frieze, and the terrifying entrance of Kostchei’s fluttering, lurching, winged and taloned monsters. I must have seen dozens of Firebirds, and few match this for fairytale shock and awe.

    Press Review 4Louise Levene, Financial Times, Tuesday 12 August 2014Performance 11 - 12 August 2014

    Alexander Golovin’s fantastical forest and Bakst’s principal costumes with their gaudy palette of mauve and turquoise have a pop-up storybook magic and the rear wall made from the petrified corpses of knights gives additional force to Stravinsky’s sublime resolution. 

  15. Mariinsky Ballet - Apollo / A Midsummer Night’s Dream - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 5Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 12 August 2014Performance 8 - 9 August 2014

    I think the whole thing a marvel, marvellously danced by the present Mariinsky cast, with Viktoria Tereshkina an extra marvel as Titania, with our local boy, Xander Parish, a splendid Demetrius, and the whole troupe on magnificent form. A great ballet, superbly done.
