  1. Hallberg is not partnering Osipova in Onegin at the RB this season ? Osipova is cast with Muntagirov in Onegin, with Hallberg in Manon, SB And SL.
  2. Do you mean the Financial Times ? Louise Levene gave the double bill 5* and her comments on Two Pigeons were not ill informed I thought ......

  5. Since people have expressed an interest in impressions from the performances of Yulia Stepanova's performances in London here are mine, although I'm sure there will be people who saw things quite differently. I watched both of Olga Smirnova Swan Lakes (w Denis Rodkin & Vlad Lantratov) and last night Yulia Stepanova with Denis Rodkin. I also saw YS in the role with the Mariinsky partnered by Xander Parish, here in London 2 years ago. Firstly, to the Queen of Dryads variation. I agree that the audience response was muted.
