  1. I'll be there.....and i'm bringing a friend - it'll be her first time in Copenhagen. Work commitments mean that we'll be there from Wednesday 8th but we'll be going to all the performances from wed to sat
  2. I totally agree with you - technically he is amazing but i find him difficult to watch where acting and depth of character is required because he usually just ends up grinning! I was some what dramatic when he went over on his foot - the audience gasped - which i don't think helped things! But i have to be honest i did find it some what unprofessional of him to just stand there and halt the whole thing centre stage - as if he was in class. When other dancers have injured themselves in the past during a performance they have kept going with a simplified version and got off stage as soon as possible!
  3. Did anyone else see the mixed bill on friday night, when carlos halted Rhapsody only 3 mins in after going over on his ankle?
  4. Just a little question: How many people are coming from abroad to see the Bournonville festival in June? (If this has been a topic previously then feel free to ignore me)
  5. As part of the Bournonville 200 festival the RDB have recorded the Bounonville schools (though they wern't put together by Bournonville himself) and should be released in time for the festival in june 05
  6. No probs, Im desperate for Royal to come back!! I cant wait for the new season lot of exciting stuff to see..... Though i'm still angry with the opera house for getting rid of the Overture membership (for under 26s), gutted!! Can't afford the standard £70 fee! Oh well, Bygones!

  8. I'm sure these are already in the 'links' section but here are two other opinions of Wednesday's Onegin! Onegin (Dancers: Bonelli, Cojocaru, Duprot, Kobborg) by Debra Craine (The Times) : http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,685-1125258,00.html Onegin (Dancers: Bonelli, Cojocaru, Duprot, Kobborg) by Judith Mackrell (The Guardian): http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/reviews/sto...1226359,00.html
  9. Did anyone go to the first night? Rojo_fan, i know you did- tell all!! I'm going on monday 31st!!
  10. If your interested, i have a johan Yahoo! group- nothing that interesting really goes on but when ever i find new pictures of him in various performances i try to get them on the site- i've probably got about 60 or so now............. www.groups.yahoo.com/kobborg_johan
  11. The only video on general release with Johan in it is 'Bournonville Ballet Technique. Fifty Enchainements.' which was filmed when he was just 19 and shows of his abilities quite well (especially for some one who has only been dancing fulltime scine the age of 15!) Although interesting to watch it gets a bit boring after about 25. You can get it from dancebooks.co.uk (i think what it is) He danced Don Q with Tamara Rojo a while ago on TV (which i recorded) and Cinderella with Alina Cojocaru at chrismas on TV (which i also recorded) but neither are avaliable to buy (yet)! Hope i was of some help, as an avid johan fan myself- i want more vids of johan to be released!!! Maria
  12. I felt the same of her Swan Lake (Odette/Odile)- totally mis-cast. She hasn't had a chance the grow as a person either, she has never really had those two or three years (say between 18 and 21), where most of us were at university, to find out what she like and doesn't like, whats shes good at (and not) and (its bit cheesy) but also to find out WHO she is...............
  13. Hi, I can't really speak for solo seal in Canada- but i have been to solo seal in London at RAD HQ! I find them interesting from a teaching point of view but if you want big performances don't go! If you want to know how long it will last best thing to do is ring up RAD HQ Canada and ask- they should be able to tell you! The published timing for solo seal is 1 hour for 4 candidates, 1 1/4 for 5 candidates! Depending on if it is an all female or a mixed set generally the order is something like this: (All danced as Solos, of course!) Genee Port de bras Male Largo Female Adage Male Classical Variation Female Variation Male Demi-Charactere Variation Female Finales (fouettes, mangege type stuff) Male Finale (similar to female stuff) Only probs with S.S. is that you don't find out what they get!! Hope this was helpful!
  14. Most definatly an interesting schedule!! I have a feeling that I will be spending alot of money next season!!!
