"And Laurretta Summerscales's Wili Queen, Myrtha, is one of the most articulate, possibly the most interesting, and definitely the imperiously sexy I've ever seen: you never doubt for a second that this forest belongs to her."
"....Laurretta Summerscales immerses herself totally in any role she undertakes, and Giselle is no different: as a maiden on the cusp of womanhood, she darts and flickers with childish delight, pulls petals from a flower, appearing shy when meeting Albrecht secretly before boldly acknowledging her love for him in front of the whole village. Joy swiftly turns to disbelief as her world comes crashing in, Summerscales displaying just enough dramatic emphasis without going over the top. In the second act, an inner calmness gave her performance an air of peaceful tranquillity; with beautiful lines, delicate ports de bra, interspersed with bursts of virtuoso petit allegro and sharp footwork, she transformed her character into a wonderfully ethereal being."
"Laurretta Summerscales as Gulnara was simply divine in a white tutu with her quick movements, beautiful lines,perfect pointe work and multiple pirouettes. She danced with real joy, so confident and full of emotion and with some lovely moments of humour. An absolutely stunning performance."
