In galas we also want sparks to fly. Those, however, who expected technical virtuosity might have been disappointed. Ballet San Jose puts equal emphasis on nuanced expression.

Anyone wanting to see the state of contemporary ballet could do worse than head quickly for the Royal Opera House – where works by two modern masters, and one dazzling apprentice are on display.


All the choreographers have a base at the Royal Ballet, which says something for the current creative strength of the company. But it says something about the state of the current ballet-going audience that this thrilling programme has sold more slowly than endless performances of a dull production of Swan Lake.
