*****

“…Wolfgang, the Prince's tutor (danced by Karl Paquette)… a sinister manipulator who doubles as the evil sorcerer, von Rothbart, and finally carries off swan queen Odette in an unhappy end. So Paquette's evil genius regularly makes up a Pas de Trois with José Martinez's unhappy prince and Agnès Letesty - mesmerising as she eloquently mixes mime and dance on Odette's first appearance and, as black swan Odile, all brilliant mechanical smiles switched off when the prince isn't looking.”

Culturekiosque

“‘…their [Agnès Letestu & José Martinez] dancing was sensational, and Letestu in particular was magnificent. She was soft, lyrical yet aristocratic as Odette, as befits her slender, long-limbed body and her mime scene was of intense beauty. … Letestu is outstanding as Odile, both in her technical prowess and artistic interpretation.’”
