    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 27 September 2010Performance 14 - 25 September 2010

    ‘There’s a glorious logic to the fact that the Trocks, an all-male ballet troupe, camp as Christmas, have become guardians of the fragile curios of the classical repertory.’

    Press Review Phillipa Stockley, Evening Standard, Monday 27 September 2010Performance 25 September - 9 January 2011

    “Most exhilarating is the Natalia Goncharova backcloth for The Firebird. Towering 30ft high, accompanied by Stravinsky’s spinetingling music to a shadow-show of figures dancing against flames, it conjures the excitement of its premiere in 1910. Other delights…

    Press Review Clement Crisp, FT, Monday 27 September 2010Performance 25 September - 9 January 2011

    ‘The exhibition is cleverly shaped, taking us from ballet as Diaghilev found it – debilitated – by way of thematic displays about the elements that formed his repertory, and the progress of taste as Diaghilev transformed it.’
