  3. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 30 January 2008Performance 18 Jan - 31 Mar 08

    ‘Sarah Lamb, making her debut, is fascinating casting. A dancer of magnificent technique and style, she has approached 19th-century classics with a reverence that becomes dull. Sylvia is a glimpse of how good Lamb could be in a tutu ballet, stepping past reverence … 

  4. Tango por Dos in Miguel Angel Zotto's Buenos Aires Tango at Peacock Theatre

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Wednesday 30 January 2008Performance 29 Jan - 23 Feb 08

    ‘Buenos Aires Tango is a great show. It’s Argentine tango, the smooth, slip-slide variety. Forget the sharp, staccato tango we see on ballroom shows with almost comical flicks of the head and shoulders. With Tango por Dos, it’s all Latin languor.’  

  5. Sampled at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 30 January 2008Performance 26 & 27 Jan 08

    ‘..it’s the strength of the onstage programme that sells it…It’s a good mix of solo and company performances.’  

  6. Sampled at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Wednesday 30 January 2008Performance 26 & 27 Jan 08

    ‘This is Sadler’s Wells’ advert for itself, a chance to sample the dance wares on offer throughout the year at London’s premier dance venue. It cost just £10 – five for prommers – to see a hugely diverse programme.’

  8. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 28 January 2008Performance 18 Jan - 31 Mar 08

    ‘Sylvia, the 1952 ballet by Frederick Ashton, is looking even emptier and sillier than it did when rescued from oblivion three years ago, now that curiosity is sated.’ 

  9. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 28 January 2008Performance 18 Jan - 31 Mar 08

    ‘…it wins in the charm, zest and wit of Ashton’s choreography, in the music, of course (beautifully played under Benjamin Pope), in the lovely original designs by Robin and Christopher Ironside, with Peter Farmer’s sympathetic additions – an… 

  10. Royal Ballet in Sylvia at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 28 January 2008Performance 18 Jan - 31 Mar 08

    ‘The Delibes score, meanwhile, one of the most compelling in classical ballet (Tchaikovsky thought it better than Swan Lake) is delivered with all the sweep and colour of 19th-century Paris under the baton of Benjamin Pope.’ 

  11. Tilted Productions/Maresa von Stockert in Glacier at Laban

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 28 January 2008Performance 23 & 24 Jan 08

    ‘There’s a good reason why dance makers rarely engage with political issues: movement, even with words to help, is just too blunt an instrument.’ 

  12. Tilted Productions/Maresa von Stockert in Glacier at Laban

    Press Review Donald Hutera, Times, Monday 28 January 2008Performance 23 & 24 Jan 08

    ‘As clever as she is, too much of her stylistic obsession – the constant testing of a prop or object with or against the body – can become a limitation. We perceive her sense of conscience. What is missing, crucially, is a commensurate urgency of fee…
