    Press Review 3Keith Watson, Metro, Friday 30 August 2013Performance 26 Aug - 1 Sep 2013

    A walk through the backstreets of the Isle of Dogs as night falls might not sound too promising but choreographer Anna Buonomo conjures up a special kind of urban magic.

  3. Bolshoi Ballet - The Flames of Paris - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 20 August 2013Performance 16 & 17 August 2013

    last weekend the Bolshoi danced Alexei Ratmansky’s recreation of the same work – a wonderfully smart and entertaining production that not only proved to be the highlight of its London season, but was a reminder of what the company lost when Ratmansky left for A…

    Press Review 5Zoe Anderson, Independent, Monday 19 August 2013Performance 16 & 17 August 2013

    The Flames of Paris brings out the best in the Bolshoi, who give the strongest company performance of this London visit. The court divertissement goes on far too long, but Kristina Kretova and Artem Ovcharenko are terrific in it, with beautifully phrased dancing and wi…

    Press Review 4Rosamund Urwin, Evening Standard, Monday 19 August 2013Performance 16 & 17 August 2013

    Osipova and Vasiliev are an exhilarating pair, with chemistry and energy in abundance. As Philippe, a revolutionary, Vasiliev was magnetic on stage. His leaping showed so little regard for gravity that it drew gasps from the audience and left his eyes flashing.

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 18 August 2013Performance 12 & 13 August 2013

    And Smirnova, the company’s newest, brightest star, is awesome. Tall and amber-eyed, with a regal set to her head, expressive arms and long swayback legs, she is the physically perfect instrument of her art form.

  8. Zoonation - Groove on Down the Road

    Press Review 4Keith Watson, Metro, Friday 16 August 2013Performance 10 August - 1 September 2013

    Prince uses the Oz framework and a young cast brimming with talent to make a heartfelt plea for the value of creativity in society. In between the riot of backflips and electric ensemble dance routines, Prince takes aim at a government seemingly intent on driving creat… 

  9. Bolshoi Ballet - The Flames of Paris - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Friday 16 August 2013Performance 16 & 17 August 2013

    As young lovers caught up in the tumultuous events of the French Revolution, Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev display an exuberance so enormous that it blasts from the stage like a barrage of canon fire, forcing the audience to applaud.

    Graham Watts, Friday 16 August 2013 — Performance: 14 - 17 August 2013

    Shanghai Ballet made a welcome late addition to London’s festival of ballet this summer, made all the more fascinating since we know nothing of these dancers... Continue Reading

  12. Shanghai Ballet - Jane Eyre - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Neil Norman, Daily Express, Friday 16 August 2013Performance 14 - 17 August 2013

    Performed with clarity of character if not narrative this is an evening of spellbinding sequences rather than a authoritatively structured whole. But the accumulation of detail adds up to a work that is never less than engaging.  

  13. Shanghai Ballet - Jane Eyre - London Coliseum

    Press Review 3Rosamund Urwin, Evening Standard, Thursday 15 August 2013Performance 14 - 17 August 2013

    Fan Xiaofeng injects passion and energy as Bertha. As she dances with Rochester (a dynamic Wu Husheng), she embodies obsessive love.

    Press Review 4Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Thursday 15 August 2013Performance 10 August - 1 September 2013

    the dancing skills on display from the young cast are dazzling, whether they are grooving down the yellow brick road that runs around the auditorium (a clever disguise for scene changes) or back-flipping, spinning and jiving around the stage. Their precision and energy…
