A review of English National Ballet by Graham Watts for Bachtrack.

Quote

The programme had opened with the wedding extracts from Ronald Hynd’s Coppélia, led charmingly by Fernanda Oliveira and Jeffrey Cirio as Swanilda and Franz, and there was a reprise of Ben Stevenson’s enigmatic barre-based duet, Three Preludes, which had been a highlight of the company’s 70th anniversary gala, danced again by Junor Souza, this time accompanying the imposing Emma Hawes.   

Rosemary Waugh reviews the program for i news.

Quote

Jeffrey Cirio is a man with the athletic body confidence of Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar. He looks like he is just dancing, like what he’s doing isn’t learnt choreography or the result of meticulous practice, but simply the natural, rhythmic, fun movements of the body.

Louisville Ballet announces its 2021-22 season schedule.

Quote

Set in “a futuristic world,” the artistic team uses laser technology to create the scenic design in Curran’s “Swan Lake,” which premiered in 2016. Its 2021 restaging will feature “updated sets and costumes that challenge concepts of light and dark, uniformity and the meanings we attach to both,” the release said.

A review of Pacific Northwest Ballet by Sondra Forsyth for Broadway World.

Quote

The seven dancers who will be moving on are corps de ballet dancers Nancy Casciano and Angeli Kiana Mamon-Urrea, soloists Leah Merchant and Steven Loch, and principal dancers Laura Tisserand, Jerome Tisserand, and William Lin-Yee. During the "Encore" performance, various artists talked with charm and sincere fondness about the time they've spent with those who are leaving. Even Francia Russell, who was PNB's Artistic Director with husband Kent Stowell for 27 years before Peter Boal came on board in 2005, gave a send-off to the Tisserands - and to their two young daughters. That cameo alone makes watching all of this worthwhile!

Diablo Ballet wraps up its season with 'Love Stories.'

Quote

The chamber-sized company, which has flourished for 27 years, reliably dances with personality and stylistic panache thanks to its longstanding relationships with local ballet stars, including former San Francisco Ballet principal Joanna Berman, who for this program has staged Christopher Wheeldon’s charming 2002 creation “Carousel (A Dance.)”
