  5. Royal Ballet in Concerto/The Judas Tree/Elite Syncopations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance in rep until 15 April 2010

    Concerto: ‘Yuhui Choe was bright and delicate as she led the flurry of rhythms in the first movement, Marianela Nuñez was rapturously serene in the dusky adagio of the second.’  

  6. Ballet Black at Linbury Studio

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance March 2010

    ‘ It segues into an affecting three-part duet called Lovers — Jade Hale-Christofi and Cira Robinson, a fine duo — that beautifully encapsulates the aspects of romantic expectation: tenderness, intimacy, support. Sextet ends with a happy and harried F… 

  7. Royal Ballet in Concerto/The Judas Tree/Elite Syncopations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sun.Times, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance in rep until 15 April 2010

    Elite Syncopations: ‘Mara Galeazzi in Calliope Rag and McRae in Friday Night, both witty; Iohna Loots and Liam Scarlett shyly romantic in The Golden Hours; Laura McCulloch and Paul Kay very funny in the mishaps of the tall girl/small man Alaskan Rag; and the supers… 

  8. Homage to Nureyev in Ballet Gala at London Coliseum

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance 21 March 2010

    ‘Most items had some kind of link – often tenuous – to Rudolf Nureyev, but the programme had little sense of organisation or pace.’  

  9. Ballet Black at Linbury Studio

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance March 2010

    ‘The best and freshest-looking item this year is Henri Oguike’s Da Gamba, a gloriously spirited response to a Bach cello suite from a choreographer making his first work on point’ 

  10. Royal Ballet in Concerto/The Judas Tree/Elite Syncopations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Sun.Independent, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance in rep until 15 April 2010

    ‘If MacMillan was really trying to suggest a causal link between male impotence, unacknowledged homosexuality and violence against women, then he’d bitten off more than he could chew’ 

  11. Royal Ballet in Concerto/The Judas Tree/Elite Syncopations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance in rep until 15 April 2010

    ‘However confusing the ballet [The Judas Tree] , the cast dig deep in dancing it. Leanne Benjamin is superb as the woman, damaged, bold and delicate’  

  12. Ballet Black at Linbury Studio

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance March 2010

    ‘Hampson’s Sextet is a full-company showcase to Paul Hindemith’s Kammermusik No. 1. The dancers charge through a series of short movements, athletic and sharp.’  

  13. Royal Ballet in La Fille Mal Gardee at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance in rep until 28 April 2010

    ‘What distinguishes McRae’s performances, and his artistic personality, is the academic clarity, the vivid energies and – rarissime – the sense of an entire command of the forces that form his dancing’  

  14. Royal Ballet in Concerto/The Judas Tree/Elite Syncopations at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance in rep until 15 April 2010

    ‘There can be no praise too great for Edward Watson’s account of the victim of the betraying kiss, so potent, so anguished in its vehemence, wholly truthful; nor for Leanne Benjamin as the Woman, varied and vivid in dance, beautiful, everywhere commanding;… 

  15. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch in Kontakthof at On tour, coming to the Barbican Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 30 March 2010Performance 1-4 April 2010

    ‘The performers may be teenagers, but they swiftly draw us into the traumatic world that Bausch made her own. Their movements are measured, spectral, purposeful.’
