    Fantastic emotional performance by Cojocaru and Reilly was perfect as Onegin,a wonderful paring.Genesia Rosato was again wonderful in both expression and performance.

    Fantastic, went to see it last Saturday and totally enjoyed the whole performance! The choreography by Cranko was so well blended with the music and every little movement had its meaning. Fantastic body language through the dance and the emotions and 'dialogue' was really well understood. Totally enjoyed every moment and looking forward to secure tickets for as many ballets are possible, it has probably been too long since last time!

  3. See my website for my review!

    Absolutely stunning. I loved it, although a ballet lover I had never seen Onegin, and thought it was magical. Thoroughly recommend anyone to go and see this production. I wish I could see it again.

    As a newcomer to ballet, this was my fourth ballet experience, three of them at the ROH. This captivating performance of Onegin (Fri 25th) marked the moment when a growing interest in ballet turned into a strong desire to see more of and understand more about this beautiful and unique art form. Onegin is destined to be a favourite for these reasons and this performance forever remembered with pleasure and gratitude!

    I like this Onegin and I would highly recommend this production. On 19 Jan I was there for the opening night and I enjoyed the new pairing and performance of Alina Cojocaru and Jason Reilly.

    Yesterday I checked on the ROH website that Kobborg would be dancing. I thought he must have recovered from his back injury. So I bought a ticket to see him. Imagine my disappointment to find Reilly replacing Kobborg again. No offence to Reilly. At least ROH should have changed the cast on the website. Today I am happy to find that ROH has done that by updating this Saturday 2 pm performance to avoid further disappointment.

    So many people have commented that they'd like to see this again (myself included) - are there plans to release this on DVD?

      Dear Dana

      Unfortunately we do not have the rights to release the ballet on DVD.

      Best wishes
