  1. New Year’s Gala from Royal Swedish Opera & Ballet Ballet section introduced by director Nicolas Le Riche begins at 28.15 minutes - Ben Stevensons’ Three Preludes to Rachmaninov Haruka Sassa and Calum Lowden - Johan Kobborg’s Les Lutins (excerpt) Dmitry Zagrebin Free on their on-demand website https://www.operanplay.se/en/performances/concerts Available until 15/16 January
  2. Johan Kobborg announced tonight on various social media that his production of Romeo and Juliet will be at the Royal Albert Hall on April 14th. The cast is not announced, but I think we can suppose at least Alina Cojocaru and Sergei Polunin will be confirmd. I am crossing my fingers for Nikolas Gaifullin as Thybalt.
  3. News from Japan: Alina Cojocaru’s Dream Project 2020 is to be performed 5-11 February 2020 in Tokyo and Otsu-shi, Shiga and will feature Friedemann Vogel with Alina in Ballet Imperial in Programme A. Programme B will feature Sergei Polunin with Alina in the complete Marguerite and Armand. I am guessing Johan Kobborg will play Armand’s father. (He has already performed this role in 2016 when Alina and Friedemann were the leads.) Other participants announced so far are Osiel Gouneo and Nancy Osbaldeston. https://www.nbs.or.jp/stages/2020/cojoca
  4. i am wondering how it went! anyone see any reviews anywhere? i didn't realize it was an outdoor venue, not being familiar with Italy.
  5. I haven’t started a new thread before so please bear with me. Dance Europe subscribers will see an interesting interview in the July edition with Johan Kobborg (he is always interesting!) on the new Romeo and Juliet he is choreographing for Sergei Polunin and Alina Cojocaru in the main roles for Poluninink company. The premiere will be in the Arena Di Verona on Monday 26th August and it will be classical ballet (women en pointe, men in tights) we are told, with a modern take. Intriguing. There are frequent updates via twitter/instagram, from Johan mostly, including
  6. If anyone has tickets they can no longer use for Romeo and Juliet in Verona on Monday 26th August please let me know, as a fan is looking for 2 armchair seats together. Separately a friend has one spare (due to family life events) to sell. Let me know and I can put you in direct contact.
  7. Rave reviews from Italy for this tour of Fraudulent Smile and Sacre in beautiful summer venues - see poster below. One more show on 27/7. Sergei added an extra performance of ‘Take Me To Church’ last night in the courtyard of Santa Maria Novella in Florence as a ‘thank you’ for the love he is getting there, especially from Florence. Videos can be found on Instagram showing his remarkable emotion, technique and stamina, and in the 40 degree heat. Ross Freddie Ray says ....
  8. I have headed this thread ‘Polunin in London May/June 2019’ so that if anyone saw the triple bill they can add their review(s) too. We went to see Polunin’s ‘Rasputin’ this afternoon. Here’s a review of the performance, but not of the surrounding controversy, as that has been fully discussed in another now-closed thread. I hope if anyone replies to this they too will concentrate on the spectacle rather than perceived faults of the man’s wider persona. First, the audience: my partner and I had a look around and independently guessed it was 85-90% full but it’s difficul
  9. Johan Kobborg has just announced on Facebook that his fiancée Alina Cojocaru gave birth to their baby daughter Thalia last week. Congratulations to them both!
  10. 3 JUNE 2013 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg have announced they will leave The Royal Ballet at the end of the 2012/13 season to pursue other artistic challenges. Their last performance at the Royal Opera House as members of The Royal Ballet will be in Mayerling on 5 June. They will fulfil their touring engagement with the Company with their scheduled performances on 10 and 12 July in Tokyo. They will both continue dancing and will shortly announce their future plans. Kevin O’Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet, said: “Alina and Johan have given many memorable p
  11. Did anyone else see this at the cinema this afternoon? (or live, for that matter ). I was surprised to see how different a "feel" it had from the Royal Ballet version, which is presumably pretty much identical, which was performed a few months ago: it struck me as being rather less Romantic and less obviously Bournonville in style - or was I just not picking it up so much from the figures on a 20-foot (or whatever) screen?
