  2. DV8 in To Be Straight With You at Nottingham & touring

    Press Review Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise, Wednesday 30 April 2008Performance Apr 08

    ‘In this work, which is a loosely linked series of solo and ensemble turns by a polyglot mob of talents, Newson fashions a thrilling entertainment around the obliquely suggested idea that taking personal responsibility for one’s own attitudes, on the one hand…

  4. Phoenix Dance Theatre in Mixed Bill at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Tuesday 29 April 2008Performance 28 & 29 April 08

    ‘If his first two seasons are anything to go by, this is extremely good. De Frutos ditched the so-so works from so-so choreographers, and created his own still eyebrow-raising pieces as well as bringing in little-seen giants from the past.’  

  5. Royal Ballet in Serenade/Rushes – Fragments of a Lost Story/Homage to the Queen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 29 April 2008Performance in rep to 14 May 08

    ‘The big news of this production is the music. Brandstrup uses a recently rediscovered Prokofiev score, sketches for a film project that was never completed, arranged and expanded by composer Michael Berkeley.’  

  6. Royal Ballet in Serenade/Rushes – Fragments of a Lost Story/Homage to the Queen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Tuesday 29 April 2008Performance in rep to 14 May 08

    ‘Brandstrup’s twisting, restless choreography works well on the corps, but is best in the partnerwork, particularly in the detail given to the women – fingers flick in annoyance, shoulders square up defensively or slouch in resignation.’  

  7. Royal Ballet in Serenade/Rushes – Fragments of a Lost Story/Homage to the Queen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 29 April 2008Performance in rep to 14 May 08

    ‘Nuñez and Pennefather are wonderful, she deftly shading her performance with foreboding, he simply fading into unknowability, but it’s Lauren Cuthbertson’s Russian Girl who is the revelation. [Serenade]’ 

  8. Cirque Du Soleil in Delirium at 02 arena

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 25 April 2008Performance APr 08

    ‘About halfway through Delirium, there are are two Chinese acrobats of such staggering skill that they almost stop the show.’  

  9. Royal Ballet in Serenade/Rushes – Fragments of a Lost Story/Homage to the Queen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Frater, Evening Standard, Friday 25 April 2008Performance in rep to 14 May 08

    ‘His [Balanchine’s] Serenade opened The Royal Ballet’s triple bill at the Opera House last night and easily eclipsed all else.’  

  10. Royal Ballet in Serenade/Rushes – Fragments of a Lost Story/Homage to the Queen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 25 April 2008Performance in rep to 14 May 08

    ‘Brandstrup’s fondness for elliptical choreography is well served by their emotional turmoil, which plays out in long phrases that reveal inner suffering with an outward stretch.’  

  11. Royal Ballet in Serenade/Rushes – Fragments of a Lost Story/Homage to the Queen at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 25 April 2008Performance in rep to 14 May 08

    ‘The result [Rushes] is one of the richest and most dramatic new ballets seen on the stage of the Royal Opera House for a good long time, a sensual, fluid creation.’

  13. Review: Royal Ballet in Serenade/Rushes – Fragments of a Lost Story/Homage to the Queen at Royal Opera House

    Graham Watts, Friday 25 April 2008 — Performance: in rep to 14 May 08

    23 April 2008 This was an evening that fell unaccountably flat even though it’s hard to fault any of its ingredients; perhaps it was the lack of any continuity in the theme or style of the overall programm… Continue Reading

  14. Review: Royal Ballet in Sleeping Beauty at Royal Opera House

    Libby Costello, Thursday 24 April 2008 — Performance: 22 April 2008

    Nothing exposes the ballerina like the balances in the Rose Adagio. If Roberta Marquez hastily took the hand of her suitor during the first few moments of this famous sequence, she more than made up for any wobb… Continue Reading
