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


Don Quixote - DanceTabs - UK 

 
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.

La Sylphide - The Guardian - UK



The storytelling is masterful'..This is a century-and-a-half-old ballet presented in a way that feels as authentic as the day it was born. 
 
Giselle- The List UK


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

Don Quixote - 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


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

Don Quixote- - RG RU - Russia
