    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Tuesday 25 July 2006Performance 18-22 July

    “a big part of the pleasure of this show was the amazed whoops and gasps of the crossover crowd as Acosta launched himself into manoeuvres that they had never dreamed possible. Smoking pirouettes that melted into stillness. Soaring leaps into space.”

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 21 July 2006Performance 18-22 July

    ‘Dancing the Diana and Actaeon pas de deux with Marianela Nunez, Acosta jetés into the spotlight, dressed only in a tiny gold kilt, and proceeds to transform the stage into some kind of miraculous pinball machine.’

    Press Review Debra Craine, Times, Friday 21 July 2006Performance 18-22 July

    ‘The programme of short works, hand-picked by the 33-year-old Cuban star, showcases his dazzling talents, along with those of his Covent Garden colleagues. The dancing throughout is gorgeous; as a night of sheer pleasure, it can’t be beat.’

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 19 July 2006Performance 18-22 July

    ‘He adds extra twirls to already whizz-bang steps, swizzling his legs in the barrel turns. Nuñez matches him, sailing blithely through fouetté turns and hops on pointe.’
