A article from Sheffield on Northern Ballet's production of Madame Butterfly:

NORTHERN Ballet are back next week with their spectacular production of Madame Butterfly which was first seen in 2002.
But for two members of the Northern Ballet hierarchy their memories go back long before that.

Artistic director David Nixon originally created the piece for his ballerina wife, Yoko Ichino, who is now ballet mistress and academy director of the Leeds-based company.

West Australian Ballet director Ivan Cavallari has created a ballet on the story of Pinocchio:

MOST people think they know the story of Pinocchio but it’s hard to imagine they have ever seen it quite like this.
West Australian Ballet artistic director and choreographer Ivan Cavallari’s reimagining of the 1883 tale of the cheeky little wooden puppet fashioned in Gepetto’s workshop and his journey to becoming a real boy is truly captivating.

Ismene Brown reviews the San Francisco Ballet:

http://www.theartsde...s-wells-theatre

It's been eight years since San Francisco Ballet were last here, charming us with their finesse and their smiles - welcome back. They offer a boost of spirit to the gloomsters of ballet over here. This small city which punches many times above its weight in the cultural world owes a vast amount of its self-confidence and charisma to its mixed ethnic roots, so the range of dancers from the Far East via North Europe and the Latino Americas is representative.


Judith Mackrell's review in The Guardian.

http://www.guardian....let-programme-1

It's a work that also plays with the exceptional qualities of its dancers: the sphinx-like Sofiane Sylve, the voracious energy of Maria Kochetkova, the cushioned power of Daniel Deivison. But SFB is rich in talent, from corps member Koto Ishihara, who dances Divertimento with a Mozartian sweetness of detail, upwards to the lyrically awesome Yuan Yuan Tan. With two programmes to go, there's a luxurious sense of many surprises to come from this clever company.
