    Press Review 3Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Tuesday 30 October 2012Performance 29 -31 October 2012

    There are moments of quiet beauty, dynamic energy and sculptural heft, but all in all, this piece feels like lots of sections of material developed in rehearsal and strung together in no particular order, with no sense of a greater arc or structure.

  7. Birmingham Royal Ballet - Autumn Celebration - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 29 October 2012Performance 24 - 27 October 20-12

    The work drifts slightly during its central slow duet, but I love the fact that Bintley takes his choreography to a place where the women are as strong as the men.

    Graham Watts, Monday 29 October 2012 — Performance: 24 - 27 October 20-12
