Brian Seibert reviews the New York City Ballet for the New York Times:

http://www.nytimes.c...eview.html?_r=1

Mr. Fairchild reminds me of Montgomery Clift. He’s dark-haired and handsome like the movie star, broodingly clean-cut, and his Apollo contained suggestions of Method acting. Mr. Fairchild is also young; at 24 he’s the age of the dance’s creator at the time of its creation. Yet there’s something 1950s about his masculine sensitivity. He might have had a pack of cigarettes rolled up in a sleeve, if his shirt hadn’t been sleeveless.

Leigh Witchel reviews "Ocean's Kingdom" for the New York Post:

How do you pack the New York City Ballet's the ater to the gills? Ask Paul McCartney to write a ballet about the sea.

The result -- a blockbuster -- is "Ocean's Kingdom," the former Beatle's 45-minute work. Choreographed by company director Peter Martins for more than 40 dancers, it debuts Thursday.

Martins and McCartney met at a gala last year and decided to work together shortly after.

Jeffrey Taylor reviews Northern Ballet for The Express:

http://www.express.c...t-review-Hamlet

NORTHERN Ballet’s autumn/spring season opens with David Nixon’s crackling and pacy version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Yet the familiar story of an indecisive and callow royal prince would be far more convincing if titled Jimmy or Ginger.

Former Royal Ballet principal Deborah Bull discusses her battles with food:

http://www.telegraph...-with-food.html

The star of the Royal Ballet, who retired 10 years ago, has said that she had "a very unhealthy attitude to food for many years" and switched back and forth from low calorie diets to bingeing on fatty foods.

In an interview with The Sunday Times she said she had "battled with fad diets and alternated famine with feast" and said she had written about the problems in a new book, The Everyday Dancer, to be published next month.
