  3. Janis Claxton at Clore Studio Theatre, Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 31 July 2006Performance

    ‘Her solo, Blue, part of the Clore Studio’s summer programme, is a distracted-looking assembly of in-turned hops, fluttery arm gestures and brief, off-classical turns.’ 

  4. ZooNation in Into the Hoods at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 31 July 2006Performance 20-23 July

    Into the Hoods is this fresh young company’s most ambitious and entertaining project yet.  

  5. Mariinsky Theatre (formerly Kirov) in The Young Lady and the Hooligan/ The Bedbug/ Leningrad Symphony at Coliseum

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 31 July 2006Performance 25 - 27 July

    ‘Musically, this is a terrific idea, but great music does not automatically inspire great ballets, as Tuesday’s triple bill demonstrated.’ 

  6. Mariinsky Theatre (formerly Kirov) in The Young Lady and the Hooligan/ The Bedbug/ Leningrad Symphony at Coliseum

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 31 July 2006Performance 25 - 27 July

    ‘It is usually a pleasure to welcome the Mariinsky (formerly Kirov) ballet back to London, and the breadth of its repertoire is such that you would seldom be disappointed by a choice of programme. But this short season at the Coliseum didn’t follow the norm.’ 

  7. Mariinsky Theatre (formerly Kirov) in The Young Lady and the Hooligan/ The Bedbug/ Leningrad Symphony at Coliseum

    Press Review Clifford Bishop, Independent on Sunday, Monday 31 July 2006Performance 25 - 27 July

    ‘A salutary aspect of Soviet-era choreography is the glimpse it affords of what Russian dance might have been like without the civilising influence of the French in the 19th century.’ 

  8. Mariinsky Theatre (formerly Kirov) in The Golden Age at Coliseum

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 31 July 2006Performance 28/9 July

    ‘There are two reasons to love this scenario: firstly, Gelber’s casting of Gabriella Komleva as old Sophie brings to the stage all the dignity and delicacy of her former ballerina graces; secondly, we get the gutsy thrill of his impressionistic but viscera… 

  9. Mariinsky Theatre (formerly Kirov) in The Golden Age at Coliseum

    Press Review Ismene Brown, Telegraph, Monday 31 July 2006Performance 28/9 July

    ‘While the call for “more dance” has been hurriedly heeded since its St Petersburg première four weeks ago, The Golden Age still looks like a production that went wrong from organisation to outcome.’ 

  10. Review: Mariinsky Theatre (formerly Kirov) in The Golden Age at Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Monday 31 July 2006 — Performance: 28/9 July

    There is potential for an OK 2-Act ballet to break out from the obesity of this over-elaborate and self-indulgent three-Act piece. As a work in progress, it needs to be slimmed down but only if some heretical &#… Continue Reading

  14. Review: Carlos Acosta and friends at Sadler's Wells

    Sarah Bell, Friday 28 July 2006 — Performance:

    I just had to say that this was one of the best nights I have ever had at the theatre. ALL the dancers were wonderful – and I hadn’t expected to see so much of them – and of course Carlos himse… Continue Reading

  15. Mariinsky Theatre (formerly Kirov) in The Young Lady and the Hooligan/ The Bedbug/ Leningrad Symphony at Coliseum

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 28 July 2006Performance 25 - 27 July

    ‘This brief dance outing for Shostakovich is, I feel, mistaken. Whatever the merits of the scores, the ballets (even with Leningrad Symphony as focus) are choreographic revenants rather than flesh-and-blood dance.’
