As far as I can see, Sue Jin Kan won the biggest praise among other dancers in these performances. In R&J, Sue Jin Kan/Robert Tewsley and Yseult Lendvai/Vladimir Malakhov were casted in Juliet/Romeo. Kan was beautiful, delicate, and really passionate Juliet. I adored her exceptional expression. The pairing of Kan and Tewsley was fine. The passion and dynamism they showed in the balcony scene were far beyond the other pair Lendvai/Malakhov. Marcia Haydee performed Lady Capulet was a big present for Japanese ballet goers.
Sue Jin Kan was fine as Kate in Shrew, too. She completely changed from a lovely young girl to a rough, crabby shrew. Philip Balanchievich (sp?) was really handsome Petrouchio. His strong techniques excited the audience.
The dancers were generally well trained. I've never seen a company such that all dancers had so beautiful legs! I hope the company returns again soon with Cranko's another masterpiece, Onegin.
