  1. ROH2 New Dance Commissions at Linbury Studio Theatre

    Press Review 2Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 30 March 2012Performance 26 - 28 March 2012

    I hope this is a work in progress, just as I hope the other two are. With more rigorous editing and shaping, all three New Commissions might become pieces to see again  

  2. English National Ballet - Beyond Ballet Russes, Prog 2

    Press Review 4Laura Thompson, Telegraph, Thursday 29 March 2012Performance 28 March – 1 April 2012

    Suite en Blanc is a fresh-as-paint ensemble piece of eight sections, wonderfully staged and danced, with Laurretta Summerscales and Elena Glurdjidze outstanding.  

  3. Streetdance 2 3D

    Press Review 3Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, Thursday 29 March 2012Performance from 30 March 2012

    Streetdance 2 has brash energy; it does not neglect to do what it says on the tin and the lack of realism is no problem.  

  4. English National Ballet - Beyond Ballet Russes, Prog 2

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Thursday 29 March 2012Performance 28 March – 1 April 2012

    honours go to Elena Glurdjidze in the flirtatious Cigarette solo. She allowed each phrase to linger intoxicatingly, so that her dancing trailed a cloud of delicate, heady perfume.  

  5. English National Ballet - Beyond Ballet Russes, Prog 2

    Press Review 4Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Thursday 29 March 2012Performance 28 March – 1 April 2012

    Eagling wittily captures the period without tipping into archness. Stylistic references to the angular modernism of Nijinsky (and his sister, Nijinska) are bent into a framework for playfulness and flirtation  

  6. English National Ballet - Beyond Ballet Russes, Prog 2

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Thursday 29 March 2012Performance 28 March – 1 April 2012

    The evening opened with a fine account of Balanchine’s Apollo. Zdenek Konvalina, a very elegant dancer, plays the young god with smooth lines and intelligent phrasing. He’s matched by Daria Klimentová’s Terpsichore, danced with clarity and warmth.  

  7. Royal Ballet - Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

    Press Review 2Louise Levene, Seven Magazine, Telegraph, Wednesday 28 March 2012Performance in rep until 13 April 2012

    The plot remains episodic and uninvolving, the choreography lacklustre and the characterisation perfunctory.  

  8. The Most Incredible Thing

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Wednesday 28 March 2012Performance 25 March - 7 April 2012

    this very modern adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s 1870 fairy-tale surges forward, sleekly and relentlessly, as if fearful that pausing even for a second might suffocate it.  

  9. The Most Incredible Thing

    Press Review 2Sanjoy Roy, Guardian, Wednesday 28 March 2012Performance 25 March - 7 April 2012

    Buried inside this big multimedia production, an illuminating fable is waiting to get out; one that marries a vision of love with a vision of creativity. You glimpse it in the central scene depicting a world of wonders, but mostly this entirely postmodern piece – whi… 

  10. The Most Incredible Thing

    Press Review 4Clifford Bishop, Evening Standard, Wednesday 28 March 2012Performance 25 March - 7 April 2012

    The Most Incredible Thing is given a knowingly sardonic makeover by De Frutos. The winning device — a magical clock that produces different biblical and allegorical figures when it strikes the hours — becomes a much more rarefied entertainment

  12. English National Ballet - Beyond Ballet Russes, Prog 1

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Monday 26 March 2012Performance 22 - 27 March 2012

    David Dawson’s duet Faun(e), … This tasteful study in sexuality, companionship and communication gets everything right, and is poetically danced by guest artists Jan Casier and Raphaël Coumes–Marquet.  

  13. Fleur Darkin - Blake Diptych: Experience

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 25 March 2012Performance 20 March 2012

    Darkin’s free-flowing choreographic language adapts itself well to family dynamics, and we’re given some sense of the social restraints and “mind-forg’d manacles” against which Blake was so passionately to react; but of the dangerous blaze… 

  14. News: The future of young British ballerinas

    Sunday 25 March 2012 by Sarah Golding

    Where do all the White Lodge ballet students go after their training? As Luke Jennings finds out, only a small percentage graduate into the Upper School let alone the Royal Ballet Company. Continue Reading

  15. English National Ballet - Beyond Ballet Russes, Prog 1

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 25 March 2012Performance 22 - 27 March 2012

    David Dawson’s Faun(e), by contrast, is an uncompromised joy. To the same Debussy score, this time played on two onstage pianos, Jan Casier and Raphaël Coumes-Marquet swirl around a shadowed interior in an unfolding cascade of dance.
