Every time that I see her perform this she is floating higher above the stage.

Just finished watching Act II.

Both Shakespeare and the angels must be smiling down on this one.

Enjoy.


[PS--Total praise also to Johan Kobborg, every bit the perfect prince in his loving attention and support for his partner and for his own personal brilliance.]

However, I thought that Cojocaru was just a tad TOO melodramatic in acting during the "mad scene" that ended Act I. I've seen the movie of the Bolshoi Ballet troupe performing this ballet with the legendary Galina Ulanova and she did a way better job "toeing the line" (pun definitely intended here! ;) ) between great on-stage acting and melodrama.
