Theatre review: earthy and elevated
English National Ballet brings three late-20th century ballets to the Sadler's stage in this mixed bill of modern classics. American choreographer William Forsyth's hyperathletic In The Middle, Somewhat Elevated brought a young Sylvie Guillem to the attention of the world 30 years ago; the jade unitards and 80s electronic music are a little dated now, but Forsyth's explosive, angular choreography remains refreshingly modern. On press night the opening sections suffered from a few wobbles in the unison, following which the company settled into a secure and confident performance featuring an outstanding Tiffany Herman. Hans van Manen's Adagio Hammerklavier provides a lyrical respite before the main draw of the programme: Pina Bausch's earthy 1975 masterpiece The Rite Of Spring, formidably danced by the company and as potent and visceral as ever in its depiction of pagan sacrifice. English National Ballet — Pina Bausch / William Forsythe / Hans van Manen, Sadler's Wells Theatre. Rosebery Avenue , EC1R 4TN, £12-£55 23 March - 1 April ★★★★☆ Lise Smith
