  1. Bolshoi Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Zoë Anderson, Independent, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    Olga Smirnova, who danced Kitri on opening night, is the Bolshoi’s rising star. Tall and long-limbed, trained in the refined St Petersburg school, she’s a very elegant dancer.

    In fact, no soloist put a foot wrong all evening – particularly high marks, too, for those three Dryads – while the corps were marvellously boisterous in the Act I town square, lyricism itself in the Act II vision scene, and always acting as a single organism.  

  3. Bolshoi Ballet - Don Quixote - Royal Opera House

    Press Review 4Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Wednesday 27 July 2016Performance 25 - 28 July 2016

    Particularly fine in the secondary roles are Vera Borisenkova, mysterious and haughty in the Spanish Dance, and Anna Antropova, lusciously musical and melodramatic in the Gypsy Dance. 

  4. Australian Ballet - Cinderella - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4Lyndsey Winship, Evening Standard, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    . . . his composure is pricked by Cinderella (Leanne Stojmenov), the subtle softness of her dancing marking her out against the quirky moves of everyone else. 

  5. Australian Ballet - Cinderella - London Coliseum

    Press Review 2Neil Norman, The Stage, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    Having shed her Bernadette-like gear for a sparkly dress, Leanne Stojmenov reveals a thrilling and understated technique in her solos and the pas de deux.

    Press Review 3Mark Monahan, The Telegraph, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    Still, if Cinderella’s solos often carry on a little too long, they are, in the main, undeniably attractive and emotionally communicative pieces of neoclassical choreography, and Leanne Stojmenov performs them very prettily indeed.  

  7. Australian Ballet - Cinderella - London Coliseum

    Press Review 4David Jays, Guardian, Monday 25 July 2016Performance 20 - 23 July 2016

    In a busy production, Cinderella herself can seem a wallflower, but Ratmansky makes her an original, resilient heroine.
