JAPAN // NOVEMBER 2015 (Day 13)

Dear Tour Diary,

last night was a very special night as our principal dancer Roman Novitzky gave his debut as Onegin. It is no exaggeration to say that it was spectacular. With perfect calm, superb partnering and a very own interpretation, Roman delivered the performance of a lifetime.

His Tatiana was Hyo-Jung Kang who also threw herself heart and soul into her role. Angelina Zuccarini and Pablo von Sternenfels were a feisty and passionate couple as Olga and Lensky and Matteo Crockard-Villa gave his equally successful debut as Prince Gremin, every inch the aristocrat who presented his wife proudly and with great solicitude at his ball. All in all a very exciting evening which was rewarded with many curtain calls and a very enthusiastic audience.

Tomorrow is a travel day: the company flies to Sapporro. There the next debuts await us: Miriam Kacerova and Constantine Allen will give their debuts as Juliet and Romeo.

We will keep you posted!!!

Hi dear friends in Stuttgart!

It’s 4:53 am in Berlin and I still can’t sleep! I’ve just had my first performance of Onegin with the Staatsballett Berlin last night and my heart is still dancing.

Although it’s my first time ever in Berlin, everyone from the company made me feel like I’m home and they’re incredibly warm and welcoming! :)

Dancing with my Onegin Mikhail Kaniskin (Misha ;) ) was a very special experience which I’ll never forget! When I first joined Stuttgart ballet, he was already a principal dancer and I was a baby just out of the school! So it was our first time dancing together with only a few rehearsals but it didn’t matter because we both spoke the same “John Cranko Language”… Every second was a joy and pleasure on stage and I’m already looking forward to the next shows on October 10th and 25th!!

Although it’s amazing in Berlin, I miss you Stuttgart!

See you soon!! :)
