  1. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review David Dougill, Sunday Times, Monday 26 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘The company are on excellent form. Cranko’s handling of the Pushkin story as dance is masterly.’ 

  2. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Luke Jennings, Observer, Monday 26 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘Kobborg and Cojocaru are one of this generation’s great partnerships, and are clearly drawn to the challenge of portraying extreme emotional states. But Pushkin is not susceptible to quite such gothic treatment.’ 

  3. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Jenny Gilbert, Independent on Sunday, Monday 26 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘If you’ve ever doubted the power of dance to rouse you enough to make you punch the air, then see this revival of Onegin. It’s about as good as it gets.’ 

  4. Royal Ballet in Onegin at Royal Opera House

    Press Review Clement Crisp, Financial Times, Friday 23 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘One of the fascinations of watching Alina Cojocaru (Tatyana) and Johan Kobborg (Onegin) is the closeness of their physical rapport, the bravura of partnering that bespeaks an absolute dramatic sympathy as well as an absolute dedication in rehearsal.’

    Press Review Zoe Anderson, Independent, Tuesday 20 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘The Royal Ballet’s revival of John Cranko’s Onegin sets Johan Kobborg’s bitter hero against Ivan Putrov’s ardent Lensky, both completely at home with romantic sensibility.’

    Press Review Judith Mackrell, Guardian, Monday 19 March 2007Performance 16 Mar-12 Apr 07

    ‘Onegin has been in The Royal’s repertory for more than five years, but every time I see it I’m stuck again by the bizarre unevenness of Cranko’s choreography.’
