"Die anfangs harmlos scheinenden Plänkeleien eines alternden Akademiker-Ehepaares steigern sich trotz der Anwesenheit ihrer jüngeren Nachbarn zur schonungslosen Bloßstellung und Abrechnung: Hass, Minderwertigkeitsgefühle und Lebensängste kommen zum Ausbruch, Mann und Frau zerfleischen sich in Schuldzuweisungen und zynischem Selbstmitleid. Eine effektvolle Verfilmung von Albees Bühnenstück, die vor allem durch die elegante filmische Auflösung und die schauspielerische Präsenz der beiden Hauptdarsteller besticht." [film-dienst.de]

Scarlett's sensual and energising Viscera begins the programme; Afternoon of a faun is Robbin's exquisite response to Debussy's langorous Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faude; Tchaikovsky pas de deux is a bravura showpiece illustrating in miniature Balanchine's neo-classical style; and Acosta's Carmen, in which he also dances Done José in his farewell performance with the Royal Ballet, is a searingly dramatic reinterpretation of a timeless favorite" --Container
