  2. American Ballet Theatre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘The company are at their best, unsurprisingly, in American works, and their reading of Mark Morris’s Drink to Me Only With Thine Eyes, an abstract piece to Virgil Thomson’s piano etudes, is gorgeous, especially a legato section danced by Angel Corella.’ 

  3. American Ballet Theatre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Wednesday 21 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘The second programme offered by American Ballet Theatre in its brief London season seemed altogether more characteristic of the troupe, and certainly more flattering a portrait of its style and gifts than the mini-debacle we saw on the first night.’ 

  4. American Ballet Theatre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 21 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘This has been an uneven season, with too much packed into it for the dancers and the audience to see each other properly. But that is the very reason why ABT should not wait another 17 years before they return to the UK.

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 16 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘Great pleasure at the return to London of American Ballet Theatre after an absence of 16 years is, alas, mitigated by the nature of the troupe’s opening programme in Rosebery Avenue.’

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 16 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘American Ballet Theatre’s London season — its first in almost 17 years — began with white tutus and ended with flaming red pointe shoes.’  

  8. American Ballet Theatre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 16 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘It was worth the price of a ticket alone to see Balanchine’s rarely performed Symphonie Concertante.’  

  9. American Ballet Theatre at Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Ismene Brown, Telegraph, Friday 16 February 2007Performance 14-18 Feb 07

    ‘..ABT has the most succulently eclectic store cupboard of repertory anywhere, from Fokine and Tudor to Tharp and Morris, and the largest Russian classic stagings in the US, too.’
