About Alina Cojocaru
Alina Cojocaru, lead principal dancer with Sadler’s Wells Associate Company English National Ballet and resident guest artist with Hamburg Ballet, curates and performs in a new programme of classical and contemporary works.
The incandescent and illustrious Romanian ballerina is joined on stage by some very special guests, including Danish ballet star Johan Kobborg, whose “uncanny synchronicity” (Financial Times) with Cojocaru has marked out their partnership as one of ballet’s great collaborations.
The programme features both new pieces and existing classics, including Sir Frederick Ashton’s iconic one-act ballet Marguerite and Armand. This is followed by creations by contemporary choreographers Kim Brandstrup, Tim Rushton, Juliano Nunes and Johan Kobborg, interspersed with short films which take a look at Cojocaru’s life, training and career. Featuring music from Margarita Balanas (Cello), Sasha Grynyuk (Piano) and Charlie Siem (Violin), this will truly be a mesmerising show from one of the world’s most accomplished ballerinas.
