Nuñez is incomparable in La fille mal gardée, and the 2017 Giselle is the best of the three versions of this that the ROH has done.   The ROB Don Quixote is  good. But the competing Dutch National Ballet Don Quixote is some better, except for the fact that a lot of folks had motion sickness issues with the Dutch version.  Nuñez  is good in the Swan Lake, but we graded it down because we think Thiago Soares is too macho to be cast as Prince Siegfried and the sets and costumes in that older production are way out-of-date.
