Reviews for Swan Lake

  1. Royal Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Tuesday 27 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘Rare, too, the clarity of Thiago Soares’s portrait of Siegfried, every moment understood, vital in emotion. No grand bravura in dancing, but sensitivity and intelligence of an exceptional order.’

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 12 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘The Royal Ballet‘s current production of Swan Lake, mounted by Anthony Dowell in 1987, is closer than any other to the Petipa-Ivanov original and last week’s opening performance saw Ivan Putrov and Roberta Marquez in the lead roles.’ 

  3. Royal Ballet in Swan Lake at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Ismene Brown, Telegraph, Monday 12 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘The production is the familiar over-decorated affair by Anthony Dowell and Yolanda Sonnabend. I just itch to get the scissors and start snipping trailing threads, ribbons and bobbles off it.’

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 7 February 2007Performance 3-27 Feb 07

    ‘Dowell’s Swan Lake will be 20 years old this March. It has always been a popular production. This version promises a traditional text, plus opulent designs by Yolanda Sonnabend. The current run is sold out.’
