“When those 60 magnificently drilled swans flock on to the stage it’s more than a sea of white tutus: it’s a vision of the tragedy that Rothbart has created with his evil sorcerer’s spells and a measure of Odette’s overwhelming fate…dazzling.”The Times

“… All those dazzling white tutus, all those perfectly angled heads and arms and legs… the hallucinatory buzz is intense, even if you've experienced it before.”The Independent on Sunday
