    Review: A Chorus Line

    Donald Hutera, Wednesday 27 February 2013 — Performance: Booking to 18 January 2014

    If I sound like I’ve just discovered the Holy Grail of musicals it’s maybe because a) 'A Chorus Line' didn’t mean that much to me in the past and b) this uplifting version knocked me out. Continue Reading

  4. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Vollmond - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 26 February 2013Performance 22 -25 February 2013

    This is the kind of carnivalesque celebration that only Bausch could orchestrate, teetering between ecstasy and danger. Even if Vollmond doesn’t venture into the darkest chambers of her vintage work, it unlocks doors in the imagination, to which only she had the keys.

  6. Royal Ballet - Apollo / 24 Preludes / Aeternum - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 25 February 2013Performance 22, 23 February 7, 9 & 14 March 2013

    24 Preludes, Alexei Ratmansky’s magnificent new work for The Royal Ballet, glows at the heart of an awkward triple bill. The new Ratmansky makes the evening a hit, though it’s flanked by a shaky revival of Balanchine’s Apollo and Christopher Wheeldon’s half-bak… 

  7. Royal Ballet - Apollo / 24 Preludes / Aeternum - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 3Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Monday 25 February 2013Performance 22, 23 February 7, 9 & 14 March 2013

    The cast dance through Ratmasky’s fluent and ingenious encounters, evoking sudden joys and mysterious despairs, and continue until there dawns the heretical thought that Chopin/Françaix is a damned bore, and that one more embrace, yet another fall to the ground with… 

  8. Royal Ballet - Apollo / 24 Preludes / Aeternum - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 25 February 2013Performance 22, 23 February 7, 9 & 14 March 2013

    Ratmansky leaves all the flesh, though, and the eight dancers move through ballet’s dramatic tropes — longing, romance, tears, questing, heroism, running offstage with sleeves billowing — getting to the nub of the emotion without worrying about pesky plot, in def…

    Review: Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Vollmond - Sadler's Wells

    Graham Watts, Monday 25 February 2013 — Performance: 22 -25 February 2013

    It's hardly a coincidence that the main image from 'Pina' - Wim Wenders' sensational posthumous film for Pina Bausch - is taken from 'Vollmond'. There is so much beauty contained i… Continue Reading

    Lise Smith, Monday 25 February 2013 — Performance: 22 & 23 February 2013

    Dancers cut & slide across the stage, swinging from & leaping off a piece of set built to look like the skeleton of a tower block. They jump onto & dive over each other with dazzling energy and speed...  Continue Reading

    Balanchine's Apollo may still be unequalled but Kevin O'Hare's first season as Director continues to build steam. New commissions from Ratmansky & Wheeldon are strong investments for the future... Continue Reading

  12. Royal Ballet - Apollo / 24 Preludes / Aeternum - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Sunday 24 February 2013Performance 22, 23 February 7, 9 & 14 March 2013

    The first of these is also one of the ballet’s wonders: against a twilit, watery sky, dancers spin delicate traceries of movement that shimmer, coalesce and fade like the clouds themselves. It’s movement and music fused in Ratmansky’s own version of t… 

  13. Richard Alston Dance Company - Mixed Bill - New Wimbledon Theatre

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 24 February 2013Performance 9 February 2013

    There are dragonfly hoverings and humming stillnesses, consequential and unfathomable physical exchanges. If Bausch’s work offers a claustrophobic compression, Alston’s appears expandable to infinity.  

  14. Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch - Two Cigarettes in the Dark

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 24 February 2013Performance 14 - 17 February 2013

    Two Cigarettes is diverting enough, but looks slight when compared to earlier, more excoriating Bausch works such as Café Müller (1978). Archness has replaced insight, and as tableau succeeds Dadaist tableau,  

  15. Royal Ballet - Apollo / 24 Preludes / Aeternum - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Mark Monahan, Telegraph, Sunday 24 February 2013Performance 22, 23 February 7, 9 & 14 March 2013

    Steven McRae has seldom soared or spun more athletically than in the “Presto”, Alina Cojocaru’s lightness and speed make her a fantastic “Dragonfly”, and Zenaida Yanowsky and Ed Watson’s long-limbed capacity for drama is expertly exploited, too.
