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

Quote

The surprise and pleasure of the musicians in the Royal Opera House (ROH) orchestra pit was evident when Tuesday’s first night audience rose to its feet and applauded the return of live performances, even before the curtains had opened. Koen Kessels, the conductor, acknowledged our cheers with a broad smile (and a new haircut) before launching the orchestra into Ezio Bosso’s music for Within the Golden Hour. Christopher Wheeldon’s playful ballet is full of surprises as it builds from a hesitant start, as if the dancers are gradually coming to life, to a happy ending, the cast of 14 swaying together in silhouette.

The National Ballet of China celebrates the centenary of China's Communist Party.

Quote

Choreographed by four dancer-choreographers from the company -- Fei Bo, Zhang Zhenxin, Wang Sizheng and Ma Cong -- Inspiration and Glory tells stories based on four Chinese folk tales: Goddess Nyuwa Repairs the Sky (Nyuwa Butian), Jingwei Trying to Fill Up the Sea (Jingwei Tianhai), Yugong Moves Away the Mountains (Yugong Yishan) and Kuafu Chasing the Sun (Kuafu Zhuri). The tales were adapted by scriptwriter Zhu Hai.
