The sensation of the evening was of course Alina Cojocaru, who danced for the last time that night. She is really petite but she is able to strech her lines and bend her body in such beautiful arabesques that she never looks short, even with a tall partner like Nehemiah Kish. And she was equally convincing as a girlish and uncertain Hippolyta in the prologue, as an icy Titania of the 1st act and as a mature woman and duchess in the 2nd act. Especially the scene, where Theseus wakes her up in the morning and she is still a bit bewildert after her dream until the love breaks through in an extremely beautiful pas de deux, was very moving.

Music to my ears.

Thank you for posting.
