Romeo and JulietStarts again next week

Am also going to see Lauren Cuthbertson and Edward Watson who are debuting in these roles on 12th April, which I'm really excited about. Apparently Tamara has been rehearsing them (she mentioned this in the talk with Johan Kobborg) and they were shown rehearsing with Johnny Cope on the brief Channel 4 documentary about Johnny. Is anyone going to see them?
Will let you all know how they are! xx

I think more or less everyone is going to see a Cuthbertson/Watson performance - there are huge expectations of both of them, so I hope the pressure doesn't get to them!

Mara's had a lot of Romeo's to fall in love with! - Jonathan Cope, Stuart Cassidy and Inaki Urlezaga. She said in a Ballet Association talk that even though she was given very little notice her Juliets with Johan were the best she'd ever done. I was extremely moved by them, so much that I actually started to think I would go to see the RB on tour in Russia so I could see them dance it again and Mayerling too!
And yes I'm excited about Lauren Cuthberson/Watson performances too even though I feel like I've had enough of R&J after 2 runs and now a 3rd in less than a year. I'm a bit wary of the Cojocaru (replacing Darcey Bussell)/Bolle cast but the performances I tend to love are the ones that surprise me the most so we'll see! And I'm looking forward to seeing Guillem/Le Riche - the critics say these may be Guillem's last Juliets! I didn't care for her interpretation a couple years back but I have better seats this time...so again we'll see!

Sylvia, you are so lucky to have been at the conversation with tamara rojo and johan kobborg- my two favourite dancers! Unfortunately, we had to be in college at that time, and as it was one of our last ballet classes before our final exam, really couldn't miss! Please could you tell us what was said?

I have to rush off as my time is running out but I'll get back to you on this!
Saw both performances of R&J yesterday. Mara was excellent, Bonelli a big improvement on his debut last November. Have done complete about-face on Alina - she was fantastic, and quite different with new partner Roberto Bolle than with Kobborg. A bit dubious about Bolle - will write more later!
