A review of the Australian Ballet by Heather Bloom for Australian Stage.

 

A drunken pas de deux between the two is a highlight of the performance and Tong proves herself a standout performer, maintaining the seductive nature of the character without ever taking it into pantomime. Veteran dancer Heathcote is always a joy to watch, even more so when he is playing the evil Monsieur GM.

A review of San Francisco Ballet in "Cinderella" by Paul Parish in The Bay Area Reporter.

 

Purists tend to define choreography as just the dancing, and if all you valued were the steps of the dances themselves, well, they're only great when they have to be. For much of the time, they're like pianist's passagework in a concerto: brilliant, fleeting, busily getting us to the next key moment. But if chorography is overall movement design, it's a different matter: the choreographer, Christopher Wheeldon, and his collaborators have created a moving picture that takes up the whole stage, not just the floor of it.
