It is a piercing work of art, gloriously done by Tamara Rojo as the Woman – her feelings concentrated in the ravishing outlines of her dance – by Carlos …

If there’s ever been a more evocative interpreter than Tamara Rojo, I can’t imagine it. Though small and contained, she utters each gesture personally,

As the central woman, Tamara Rojo dances with calm, smooth strength. In the Farewell, there’s almost too much abandon in her gestures, but she has the

O2

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
Romeo and Juliet
UK, London, O2 Arena
Dancers: Acosta, Avis, McGorian, Polunin, Rojo
by Bruce Marriott
“Come the end, a lot of that audience seemed very happy about the night and it should encourage RB to do more and longer runs, not just at the O2 either. Bravo to RB, Raymond Gubbay and the O2.”
Ballet.co Magazine

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
Romeo and Juliet
UK, London, O2 Arena
Dancers: Acosta, Rojo
by Katie Colombus
“The downside of a production on such a massive scale is that those sitting in the back (or even the middle) can barely see the dancers on the stage. It’s like being at the opera house in Verona, where the performers are dots and the stage dusty and hard to light.However, opera is less reliant on the visual…..”

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
Romeo and Juliet
UK, London, O2 Arena
Dancers: Acosta, Pennefather, Rojo, Soares
by Neil Norman
“There are other reasons why this is such a significant event. While all the RB stars will get a turn at dancing R&J, this is, allegedly, the last time that Carlos Acosta will dance the role of Romeo, though Tamara Rojo has many more Juliets in her, I feel.”
Daily Express

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
Romeo and Juliet’s intimate moves on the O2 stage
Romeo and Juliet

“Indeed, the Royal danced the dreamy Romeo and Juliet not like the dusty dowager people mistake it for, but as the young duchess dance fans have long known is locked in the Opera House and struggling to get out.”
Evening Standard

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
4 stars
Romeo and Juliet

by Mark Monahan
“Never mind the vast space and abundance of hot-dogs – the Royal Ballet’s Romeo and Juliet at the O2 proves a heartening, rousing triumph. ”
Daily Telegraph

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
3 stars
Romeo and Juliet
UK, London, O2 Arena
Dancers: Acosta, Rojo
by Sanjoy Roy
“The event certainly brought ballet to new audiences. But the encounter cuts both ways; old-hand balletgoers who complained about latecomers, chattering and hot dogs should wise up: it’s the O2, not Covent Garden. Take ballet out of the opera house, and you also have to take some opera house out of the ballet.”
Guardian

Romeo and Juliet

Dancers: Acosta, Polunin, Rojo, Soares
by Louise Levene
“Covent Garden it ain’t. The crowd is six times the size and a good half of them of them will be munching hot dogs throughout but the Royal Ballet’s debut run at London’s O2 this weekend is a great success nonetheless.”
Sunday Telegraph

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
Two houses, both alike in dignity…first Covent Garden and now the 02
Romeo and Juliet
UK, London, O2 Arena
Dancers: Acosta, Rojo
by Jenny Gilbert
“For all its miscalculations of scale, the Royal serves Kenneth MacMillan’s 1965 choreography superbly. Whether the choreographer’s widow will ever allow it to be tampered with for in-the-round consumption is unsure.”
Sunday Independent

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
Romeo and Juliet
UK, London, O2 Arena
Dancers: Acosta, Pennefather, Rojo, Soares
by Jeffery Taylor
“This was an experimental device not sufficiently thought through. …The final picture of the dead but beautiful lovers draped across a cold slab moved nearly 10,000 people to scream and shout. It was the sound of classical ballet moving into the 21st century.”
Sunday Express

REVIEW:   Royal Ballet
3 stars
Romeo and Juliet
UK, London, O2 Arena
Dancers: Acosta, McGorian, Pennefather, Polunin, Rojo, Soares
by Zoe Anderson
“But it’s Rojo who carries the performance. The last act focuses on Juliet: her confrontations with her family, her flight to Friar Lawrence, the lovers’ deaths in the tomb. Rojo’s drive brings these scenes into closeup, intimate even in the O2.”

Asphodel_Meadows-Carmen

Asphodel Meadows

The Arts Desk – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

by Ismene Brown
    “Wonder of wonders – a really cracking triple bill at the Royal Ballet last night.
 The best of the year, by a country mile, and probably the best for several years:
 a top-notch beauty from Christopher Wheeldon, the love-it-or-loathe-it Marmite of Mats Ek’s Carmen,  and in between a comely and reverberant new ballet from a very young Royal Ballet choreographer who looks set to go places.”

Stage – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

by Gavin Roebuck
… especially Bennet Gartside with Tamara Rojo. With three leading couples and seven other couples, at 23 minutes it is short and a tad sombre and cool, …

Pretty steps into the underworld for Royal Ballet

This is London
Christopher Wheeldon’s Electric Counterpoint is one of his least good works, while Mats Ek’s staggering Carmen (special mention to Tamara Rojo in the lead) …

The Times – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

Dancers: Cervera, Gartside, Morera, Nunez, Pennefather, Rojo
by Debra Craine
    “Asphodel Meadows is an elegant and haunting one-act ballet that captures the romantic spirit and atmospheric colours of its chosen music, Poulenc’s Double Piano Concerto. And it does so with sophistication, ingenuity and a consistent classical sheen.”

Stage – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

Dancers: Gartside, Rojo, Underwood, Watson
by Gavin Roebuck
    “His earlier pieces show he has the potential to be a great choreographer and the world premiere of Asphodel Meadows confirms this.”

Evening Standard – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

Dancers: Rojo
by Sarah Frater
    “Less good is Scarlett’s handling of the largish corps of 14, which makes little impact next to his strong dances for the six principals.”

Daily Express – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

Dancers: Benjamin, Cervera, Gartside, McNally, Morera, Nunez, Pennefather, Rojo
by Neil Norman
    “His deployment of a large cast is exceptional and his grasp of spatial possibilities suggests a creative maturity well beyond his 24 years.”

Financial Times – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

Dancers: Cervera, Gartside, Morera, Nunez, Pennefather, Rojo, Whitehead
by Clement Crisp
    “An evening, or rather two-thirds of an evening, of rarest pleasure with the Royal Ballet on Wednesday, but the rest of it – Mats Ek’s interminably fatuous Carmen – was despicable.”

Guardian – Electric Counterpoint, Asphodel Meadows, Carmen

Dancers: Rojo
by Judith Mackrell
    “In Liam Scarlett, the Royal may have found the real deal.”
