A review of the Royal Ballet by Jann Parry for DanceTabs.


Although there were a few hitches on the opening night, the audience willed the performers to succeed. Laura Morera as Lise, Vadim Muntagirov as Colas and Paul Kay as Alain have the gift of radiating happiness on stage. Muntagirov’s smile is as sunny as Colas’s yellow breeches, his legs as long as Peregrine’s are short. Kay’s Alain is an optimistic innocent, never downcast for long. Morera is open and generous in the outflung effacé positions in Ashton’s choreography for his high-spirited heroine.  She also brings emotional gravitas to her love for Colas, responding to Muntagirov’s heartfelt wooing of her in their pas de deux.
