Johan Kobborg is one of the few stage directors in the world with taste and understanding of the classical ballet.

Bolshoi Magazine - Moscow

Kobborg’s staging of La Sylphide is the best I know, the most sensitive to Bournonville’s drama and manner. The production is masterly.

Financial Times - UK

This whole sequence showed Kobborg’s intuitive understanding of a ballet in which he had performed many times and his innovation at doing it differently and just as well, if not better.

"In his stagings he does not shy away from modern solutions, but to a large extent he remains a promoter of the classics, which he successfully enlivens according to the requirements of the contemporary audience.

We witnessed it on a Saturday night, a magical and wonderful evening.


Wybrzeze24 - Poland

Kobborg has deconstructed the work; mixing up the narrative’s building blocks before reassembling them in a masterpiece of balance that remains recognisably traditional but is also refreshingly new.

This - Kobborg's Les Lutins - is one of the most riveting pieces of choreography you'll ever see.

The mix of pure intelligence and pure enchantment driving his production should guarantee it a whole new audience.

The Guardian - UK

Kobborg thinks of dance as a wonderful dancer and logical as the heir to the Danish school.

RG.RU - Russia

Everything and more. As the curtain closed, and tears welled up in my eyes, I felt like I had finally seen a fresh revisit of a classic. Superbly coached, curated, and danced,

This Giselle is everything the original had and more.
