In The Night

National Ballet of Canada

Chan Hon Goh
“Goh is at the height of her powers, where technical ability and dramatic insight converge. Her dancing these days feels freer than ever, she is totally present and committed to what is unfolding on stage.”

Italian Straw Hat

National Ballet of Canada

Chan Hon Goh
“After all the pratfalls and the comically clumsy pas de deux it’s a relief to watch Chan Hon Goh as the bride in a sexy duet, gliding into the arms of her Ferdinand.”

Jewels (Diamonds)

National Ballet of Canada

Chan Hon Goh
“When it features the flame0limbed Chan Hon Goh, strongly paired with Aleksandar Antonijevic, it transcends the hard edges of gemstone to become a living, breathing memory to treasure instead.”
Chan Hon Goh
“A lyrical prima ballerina of plush clear-cut movements, Chan Hon Goh, gave an impressively strong but nevertheless truly feminine interpretation, without falling into the trap to dance as redesigned Petipa’s ballerina.”

La Sonnambula

The Suzanne Farrell Ballet

Chan Hon Goh
“La Sonnambula contains one of Balenchine’s most haunting pas de deux, performed by an urgent Mr. Huys and a drifting, unattainable Ms. Goh for a suddenly rapt audience.”
Chan Hon Goh
“…she brought human depth to the role of the Sleepwalker in La Sonnambula. Not vaporous, but tormented, she walked the edge of a psychological precipice, supplying a modern vision of the rooftop in Aumer’s Sonnambula of 1827.”
