"Kobborg concentrates on the essentials of the narrative and creates a sense of urgent lyricism in his imaginative and original choreography. In an intelligent Kobborg touch, it is Cojocaru in a red dress who laments over Tybalt’s body, not Lady Capulet, which brings a deeper, painful dimension to the lovers’ relationship".  - Dance Europe


"..Fits the modern attention span, and its urgency suits this hot-blooded tale. 

The intense focus heightens the emotions of the most vivid characters – provocative Mercutio, wrathful Tybalt, and the lovers."

- Telegraph UK - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"Direct, engaging, breathless... a whirling unfolding of internal and external events with an almost cinematic style. Kobborg infuses delicacy and humanity." - Sipario IT


"..the drama – the fights, the climactic heartbreak and the doomed romance becomes the focus." - Tatler UK


"What a triumph." - La Nazione IT

"One of the most thrilling fight scenes I have seen in ballet."

"..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." 

Similarly, the balcony pas de deux (although perhaps now re-named the high stairs duet) was refreshingly new choreography, shorn of any mimicry; earthy, visceral and passionate."

"There is no mistaking that this is an outstanding new and inventive addition to the vast catalogue of danced Romeo & Juliet productions."  - DanceTabs UK - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

"Stirring stuff...Clear and concise. There is a jewel of a piece here...deserving to become a popular work, regularly performed, to please purists and entice newcomers alike." - Express UK - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
