★★✰✰✰ For all Marston’s qualifications, I found her Jane Eyre to be a dreary affair, theatrically dutiful and choreographically thin.
Tag - Fanny Mendelssohn
★★★✰✰ The program opened and closed with the most recent works: Jessica Lang’s Her Notes and Alexei Ratmansky’s Serenade after Plato’s Symposium. Both premiered at ABT in 2016, and both are works whose inspiration largely comes from their scores.
Answer: "Do it!" Question: "What advice would you give to a young dancer who aspires to choreograph?"
★★★★✰ Jessica Lang's Her Notes is a lovely and poetic work, though one with a slightly subdued effect. It is almost too tasteful.
★★★★✰ ...their final duet, when Rochester is blinded and broken, is truly touching...
★★★★✰ It's actually the best new narrative work I've seen Northern Ballet do in many years.
