Cojocaru winner (for the second time) of the Benois de la Dance

Recommended Posts

Alina Cojocaru won for the second time the Benois de la Danse, for her first full length cretad role Julie, in Neumeier Liliom.

Congratulations, Alina. Thank you mr Neumeier and Hamburg Ballet for giving her such a fantastic opportunity, crowned with this well deserved prestigious prize.


Among male, the winner were Alina's partner in Liliom, Carsten Jung, and Mathias Heymann of Paris Opera.


The prize for choreography went to Lubovich.


If anybody has the link to Benois site, please post it: I have to run back into the House for Ballo della Regina! :-D

Thank you John.


An additional note after my quick message of yesterday: since the first edition in 1992, Alina Cojocaru is the only dancer to have been awarded more than once with the Benois de la Danse (her first was in 2004 for Cinderella).

She shares the honour with Jiri Kylian, awarded twice of course for choreography. Laurent Hilaire was awarded once as a dancer and a second time for "Life Achievement"
