American Ballet Theatre – Jane Eyre – New York

★★✰✰✰   For all Marston’s qualifications, I found her Jane Eyre to be a dreary affair, theatrically dutiful and choreographically thin.

San Francisco Ballet – The Infinite Ocean, Snowblind, Björk Ballet – London

★★★★✰   Ballet companies across the globe are in a new age of commissioning …but none can match the pioneering zeal of this, the oldest American ballet company.

San Francisco Ballet – The Fifth Season, Snowblind, Etudes – San Francisco

★★★✰✰   I was thrilled to see Snowblind returning. It was by far my favorite offering of last year’s Unbound Festival because it captivates on every level: potent storytelling, emotive choreography, fitting design tropes and deep character development.

Northern Ballet – Jane Eyre – Doncaster

★★★★✰   It’s actually the best new narrative work I’ve seen Northern Ballet do in many years.
