A review of Matthew Bourne's "Romeo and Juliet" by Mark Monahan in The Daily Telegraph.

Quote

For a few agonising moments during the press night for Matthew Bourne’s new dance-theatre version of Romeo and Juliet, it seemed that there might be no show to review. Twenty-five minutes in, the house lights came on, and there was the dread sight of the great man himself coming on stage to make an announcement. Reece Causton, playing Mercutio, had injured himself (a twisted ankle, I was later told), and we would have to wait for the stand-in to get ready.

An interview with Sara Mearns.

Quote

"Ballet is comfortable to me. So I want to get out of my comfort zone literally and doing these other things gets me out of that. It also makes me a stronger dancer and more full artist. So when I do come back to City Ballet, in a way I feel more myself when I’m on stage. I feel like a stronger artist. It’s hard to explain but all these experiences really help me in my ballet career.”
