  1. Royal Ballet in Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 3 November 2006Performance 28 Oct-20 Dec in rep

    ‘What’s different this time is the presence of two new Auroras, Alexandra Ansanelli and Lauren Cuthbertson, both first soloists tipped for greater things.’  

  2. Royal Ballet in Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 3 November 2006Performance 28 Oct-20 Dec in rep

    ‘A century after the role was first created, Aurora still ranks as ballet’s north face of the Eiger. Ballerinas far more senior than Lauren Cuthbertson have stumbled over the brutally exposing balances of its opening Rose Adagio.’  

  3. Antonia Franceschi in Up from the Waste at Soho Theatre

    Press Review Keith Watson, Metro, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance to 11 Nov

    ‘Only when she’s performing does the stage come alive – dance is her lifeline now, just as it was then.’ 

  4. Michael Clark Company in Mmm... at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 31 Oct-4 Nov

    ‘It’s an old joke that if he dropped the punk music and the bare bottoms, the dildoes and the toilet bowlstyle costumes, Clark’s choreography could pass for a nice classical ballet.’ 

  5. Royal Ballet in Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Press Review John Percival, The Stage, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 28 Oct-20 Dec in rep

    ‘ What a pleasure to see not only excellent technique, clean an stylish dancing, but a ballerina [Alexandra Ansanelli] who truly responds to the music and also makes us aware what her character feels at each moment.’ 

  6. Royal Ballet in Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 28 Oct-20 Dec in rep

    ‘Last spring, Marianela Nuñez was a fine Lilac Fairy. Five months on, she’s magnificent. Her dancing has a new plush texture. She dances Aurora later in the run: I can’t wait.’  

  7. Anastasia Volochkova at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review John Percival, The Stage, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 31 Oct

    ‘A pity that Volochkova’s multiple appearances are not matched by varied movement: mainly jumps (none too high) and leg extensions, some turns, and rather flirtatious walks on pointe as a curious signature step.’ 

  8. Michael Clark Company in Mmm... at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 31 Oct-4 Nov

    ‘Clark’s dancers do him proud, with Amy Hollingsworth fierce and cool as the Chosen Maiden. They hold Clark’s “Rite” together for him, but they can’t keep it moving forwards.’ 

  9. Michael Clark Company in Mmm... at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 31 Oct-4 Nov

    ‘The intimate, often floor-bound moments are the best: a terrific duet, during which a girl at one point stands on her partner’s bent knees but faces proudly away like the figurehead of a ship; an absolutely cracking solo payoff, danced with orgasmic energy b… 

  10. Michael Clark Company in Mmm... at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 31 Oct-4 Nov

    ‘While the music screams nihilism, the choreography screams life.’  

  11. Michael Clark Company in Mmm... at Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 1 November 2006Performance 31 Oct-4 Nov

    ‘When Clark originally made Mmm… it felt as he was embarking on personal rite of passage, trying to put the punk rebel behind him. This final version feels like the work of a mature artist.’  

  12. Michael Clark Company in Mmm... at Barbican Theatre

    Mariko Harano, Wednesday 1 November 2006 — Performance: 31 Oct-4 Nov

    Physicality: beautiful and balletically formalist Visual: stylish, kitschy and minimalist Acoustic: eclectic, dashing and nostalgic Dramaturgy: audacious and cynically funny Presentation: abstract and salubrious… Continue Reading
