EDITORS’ NOTES

Enjoy five entrancing scenes from the dancers of one of the world’s great ballet companies. Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Swan Lake provide the excuse to revel in three pas de deux that show off some wonderfully sympathetic partnerships. Miyako Yoshida, nearing the end of her glittering career, and Steven McRae in Act II of The Nutcracker are a joy to watch, as are Marianela Núñez and Thiago Soares in Act II of Anthony Dowell’s ravishing vision of Swan Lake, and Natalia Osipova is magnificent in Act III. Johann Strauss II’s whirling Voices of Spring and Joplin’s Elite Syncopations are glorious too.
