  1. Birmingham Royal Ballet - Carmina burana and Serenade - London Coliseum

    Press Review 3Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Friday 20 March 2015Performance 19 - 21 March 2015

    The best of Bintley’s own contributions are the dances for the men: the opening chorus of avid, restlessly leaping seminarians; Mathias Dingman as a religious runaway who grabs at the air as he races towards freedom and doom. Other sections feel more thinly imagined…

    CARMINA BURANA is a flat-out brutal pastiche of medieval religious obsessions. It is also, with its cast of thousands, a perfect window on to this superb company of dancers.

    Press Review Matthew Wright, The Arts Desk, Friday 20 March 2015Performance 17 March, 2015

    Akram Khan, despite the potent fluidity of his masque-like narrative with Honji Wang, was a cherry, albeit a very beautiful one, on a largely musical cake

    In her veritable toccata of a solo, Wang played her body like a keyboard, each bone and joint as singular as the notes of a piano. 

  6. Royal Ballet - Swan Lake - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Tuesday 17 March 2015Performance

    Obraztsova’s sweet lyricism draws qualities of vulnerability and inwardness from McRae’s cool finesse that many other ballerinas fail to elicit, and between them they have an exceptional musical and physical rapport. 

  7. English National Ballet - Modern Masters - Sadler's Wells

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Sunday 15 March 2015Performance 10 - 15 March 2015

    Watching ENB perform William Forsythe is a bit like hearing a convent girl swear. It’s not really in the company’s DNA. But the nine-strong cast give Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated their best shot, and it’s a joy to see them let rip.
