  1. Royal Ballet - Les Enfants Terribles – Barbican

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 30 January 2017Performance

    Moreover, Glass’s unusually spiky score – for just three pianos – is less immersive than you might hope...De Frutos’s enjoyably impish dash of Last Supper imagery in the latter stages. But it all ultimately feels remote: an intriguing and mildy out…

    Review: English National Ballet - Giselle - London Coliseum

    Graham Watts, Monday 23 January 2017 — Performance: 11 - 22 January 2017

    ...a seemingly unending torrent of performances; this was a little gem. An authentic revival of a French ballet given a Russian gloss (albeit by a young man from North Ferriby) stamped with an indelible splash … Continue Reading
