Elite, Chroma, Wayfarer at National Ballet of Canada reviews

Michael Crabb, Toronto Star:

"The triple bill that opened Wednesday, all revivals of popular works from the repertoire, has something for everyone — veteran fans who enjoy a walk down memory lane and younger fans who really like their dance well spiced. The program spans different eras, evokes varied emotions and offers a clear sense of how ballet has evolved during the past 30 years or more."

Paula Citron, Globe and Mail
 "The young man in blue (Zdenek Konvalina), with his obvious pain, is manipulated by his destiny, the man in red (Guillaume Côté). Konvalina captures the fragility beautifully, while Côté has never looked more commanding. The chemistry between the men is palpable. Their performances are magnificent...
Dylan Tedaldi and Brendan Saye continue to impress.
And one to watch is newcomer Adji Cissoko. She’s a knockout"

Gary Smith, Hamilton Spectator
 "Sonia Rodriguez and Aleksandar Antonijevic, dancers of a certain age, eat up space to sear images on your brain. With 43 years of dance between them, they prove they aren’t getting older, just better. Hot as smokin’ pistols, their physical perfection melts into globs of passion as they fire the heat at the core of this work.
They’re not alone. Greta Hodgkinson, Robert Stephen and Brendan Saye stand out as well in a tight, combustible unit that gives [Chroma] edge."
