    Press Review 5Sarah Crompton, Telegraph, Tuesday 12 August 2014Performance 8 - 9 August 2014

    …Viktoria Tereshkina’s Titania was as light and delicate as gossamer, Timur Askerov noble and accomplished as Oberon. Vasily Tkachenko’s Puck cast a girdle round the earth in a series of casual jetés and Anastasia Matvienko’s Hippolyta appeared out of nowher…

    Press Review 3Zoë Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 12 August 2014Performance 8 - 9 August 2014

    [Xander] Parish has pure line and a high jump, but he’s good in the quirky details too – the young god walking on his heels, or swinging an arm like a Pete Townshend guitar hero.
