Romanian National Opera Ballet Company in La Fille mal gardee

Recommended Posts

It helps that native daughter Cojocaru and Kobborg have adopted the company. (Cojocaru had long donated Gaynor Minden shoes to the company for her sponsorship role.) Kobborg did the staging and performed Widow Simone.

My friend, who is not a ballet junkie but has a great eye, likely didn't know being what trained in the RDB tradition means to a character role like Widow Simone, but his comment was that Kobborg did the comic parts without being over-the-top, and that the clog dance *almost* stole the show, which is how the ballet is supposed to work.

I still think about how my first performance in my PNB subscription was an add-on, the Australian Ballet performing the work, with the very young, but extraordinary talent, Lucinda Dunn. It's such a shame that ABT won't do a West Coast tour on the way to Socal for "Nutcracker" next year, bringing this work.
