Ron Wilkinson reviews Afternoon of a Faun for Monstersandcritics.com:
There are only a few people in history who combine the right place and the right time with the right personally, character and bearing to take the world to the next level. Tanaquille le Clercq was such a person. Her completely new style changed the face of ballet and her personality endured what can only be described as the cruelest blow fate can deliver, taking movement away from a dancer. Not only did she live far beyond her expected years, she lived far above expectations.
