The Royal Ballet, Evgenia Obraztsova performances of Swan Lake on 21 March 2015.
«The principal couple were Steven McRae and guest artist Evgenia Obraztsova, from the Bolshoi. She is an enchanting Odette-Odile, with a lovely singing line, but on this occasion appeared nervous, and despite McRae’s most assiduous attentions, the partnership never really fired. An electric pairing lifts this production, but last week its shortcomings were all too apparent. I know long-term Royal Ballet fans who have vowed not to return to Swan Lake until this production is replaced.» londondance.com
