  1. Renegade Theatre in Cage at Queen Elizabeth Hall

    Press Review Libby Costello, , Friday 30 November 2007Performance 29 Nov - 1 Dec 07

    Entering the auditorium to find three men, dressed in suits, enclosed in a perspex box was the audience’s first glimpse of Cage. Based upon the Greek tragedy The Bacchae by Euripides, Renegade Theatre used a movement vocabulary spanning from b-boying to acrobatics … 

  2. Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 28 November 2007Performance 23 Nov - 7 Dec 07

    ‘Emeralds, with its delicate aroma and old-fashioned virtues, is the jewel most often overlooked. But, thanks to Tamara Rojo, Leanne Benjamin and Edward Watson, it was beautifully realised as a sophisticated and compassionate evocation of French Romanticism.’  

  3. Royal Ballet in Romeo & Juliet at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Wednesday 28 November 2007Performance 16-30 Oct & 1-25 Nov 07

    ‘One of this year’s most rewarding spectacles has been the evolution of the Royal Ballet’s Ivan Putrov from accomplished but formal classicist to passionate dancer-actor.’

    Press Review Alfred Hickling, Guardian, Wednesday 28 November 2007Performance Nov 07, at Hammersmith Apollo, 10 - 12 Dec 07

    ‘Directed and choreographed by Kim Gavin, whose credits include producing Take That’s reunion extravaganzas, the show begins with the girls bursting out of a giant television set and develops into a camp tribute to anyone who ever wore more diamonds and fu… 

  5. Darcey Bussell & Katherine Jenkins in Viva La Diva at Manchester Arena & touring

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Wednesday 28 November 2007Performance Nov 07, at Hammersmith Apollo, 10 - 12 Dec 07

    ‘When they join forces to tap and sing about rhythm in white suits and fedoras they are so clearly having a good time, the audience finds them hard to resist. But they are asking people to watch them indulge their private passions – and I can’t help fee… 

  6. Review: Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Libby Costello, Wednesday 28 November 2007 — Performance: 23 Nov - 7 Dec 07

    27 Nov 07 With Jewels, Balanchine transcends time periods, countries and artistic movements to capture the brilliance of the stones he is representing. The three stand alone pieces, Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds… Continue Reading

  7. St Petersburg Ballet Theatre in Swan Lake at Royal Albert Hall

    Press Review Graham Watts, , Wednesday 28 November 2007Performance 26 Nov 07

    Just a month ago, I overdosed on two trashy, tourist-trapping Swan Lakes’ on consecutive nights of a brief visit to St Petersburg, both of which were enlivened only by a decent performance from the lead ballerina. Memories of this flooded back during the opening ac…

  10. Firsts at Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 26 November 2007Performance 21 - 28 Nov 07

    ‘I had always thought the point of the Linbury Studio was to provide a try-out pad for budding ballet and opera creatives, but in the opening programme of “Firsts” they are nowhere to be seen.’ 

  11. Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Monday 26 November 2007Performance 23 Nov - 7 Dec 07

    ‘However often you’re told about George Balanchine being a genius, nothing quite prepares you for Jewels. His three-part plotless ballet is so clever and innovative, yet so respectful of tradition, that it’s like seeing all of ballet’s history … 

  12. Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Monday 26 November 2007Performance 23 Nov - 7 Dec 07

    ‘In the Royal Ballet’s first performance of the whole work on Friday, it was Emeralds that gleamed most beautifully. Perhaps this is because the set designs work most satisfyingly here. 

  13. Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 26 November 2007Performance 23 Nov - 7 Dec 07

    ‘On Friday night, Jewels entered the Royal Ballet repertory and the machine still generated applause, rapturous and (mostly) deserved. We see three plotless works. Emeralds is set to theatre music by Gabriel Fauré, Rubies is Balanchine’s realisation of St… 

  14. Royal Ballet in Jewels at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 26 November 2007Performance 23 Nov - 7 Dec 07

    ‘Courtesy of designers Jean-Marc Puissant and Jennifer Tipton, the three plotless ballets that make up Jewels have been given an added theatrical resonance, which suits this company’s performing temperament. Emeralds is styled to look Parisian, lit by Lali…
