Romeo and Juliet 
“The most outstanding performance was by Skylar Campbell – a Californian native – as Mercutio... A great combination of inventive choreography and passionate performance, this Mercutio was the star of the night.” BachTrack.com, 2014 

 Nijinsky 
“Skylar Campbell, plucked from the corps and a decade younger, offers a different dramatic perspective. His is a Nijinsky of childlike innocence, conveyed in dancing of unaffected, almost angelic purity. He simply breaks your heart.” The Toronto Star, 2013 

The Sleeping Beauty 
“sheer avian excitement of Skylar Campbell’s debut Bluebird variation.” The Toronto Star, 2012
