As for the Mixed Bill, I have only managed to see the rehearsal but it was still pretty good. I enjoyed Agon until I saw Symphony in C which I enjoyed so much more. I thought that there was real sparkle to some of the performances, especially Isabel McMeekan and Deidre Chapman.
I really loved The Prodigal Son, but I agree with you, Simon, about Carlos. I find his personality comes through too much in a role, I can't seem to get away from seeing Carlos on stage rather than the character he is playing.
That said, he does have a fabulous jump and I thought he and Sylvie worked well together. She was in excellent form. Has anyone seen the other cast for this with Zenaida Yanowsky/Ivan Putrov- it's not a partnership that I can see working, especially that lift with the Siren holding the Son with her thighs?

Star of the show, I thought, was Yoshida in the first movement of Symphony in C. Cuthbertson was noticeably better than last week - her musicality is starting to show and there were some really lovely moments.

Maybe more later; I have terminal jet lag.
