Alastair Macaulay reviews American Ballet Theatre's Coppelia:

 

http://www.nytimes.c....html?ref=dance

 

In David LaMarche, who led Friday’s performance at the Metropolitan Opera House, American Ballet Theater has one of the world’s finest Delibes conductors of recent years. And Ballet Theater has plenty of stage performers worthy of this score. High among them were Misty Copeland, Herman Cornejo and Roman Zhurbin, who played the leading roles of the heroine, Swanilda; the hero, Franz; and the scheming doll maker, Dr. Coppélius on this occasion as “Coppélia” returned to the company’s repertory. There were two other performances on Saturday; and on July 3 through 5, the company will end its season with three more performances of it. Each cast has at least one special ingredient: a top star, an admirable artist paying farewell to the company, a striking young talent making an important debut.

Mark Monahan reviews the Royal Ballet for The Telegraph:

 

http://www.telegraph...ew-playful.html

 

Alastair Marriott’s Connectome, which premiered at Covent Garden on Saturday, is the sombre centrepiece of an otherwise effervescently playful triple bill. Its title is the word for a map of the neural connections in the brain, and the work is essentially a four-part inquiry into how, in the course of our lives, we become who we are.

Los Angeles Ballet will perform La Sylphide and Serenade:

Colleen Neary says, "LA SYLPHIDE and SERENADE are two of the most romantic and, some say, most tragic ballets choreographed - the former with a story and the other without a literal one. There is a deep spiritualism to both."
