  1. National Ballet of China - The Peony Pavilion - Sadler’s Wells

    Press Review 5Anna Winter, The Stage, Wednesday 30 November 2016Performance 29 November - 3 December

  2. Review: Hetain Patel - American Man - Sadler's Wells

    Josephine Leask , Monday 28 November 2016 — Performance: 24 & 25 November

  7. Akram Khan and English National Ballet - Giselle

    Press Review Emily May , A Younger Theatre , Monday 21 November 2016Performance

    The accumulation of Khan’s transformative vision, a severe, effecting musical score, Tim Yip’s breathtaking design, and the sheer athleticism and emotional intensity of ENB’s performers creates a work that presents the audience with a tour de force of hu…
