"RB Swan Lake matinee November 11"
 
   What a great site this is! This is my first contribution but have returned from today's matinee and felt I wanted to say what a promisisng partnership Leanne Benjamin and Johan Kobborg are. This was my third cast this season - Rojo/Persson (OK), Yoshida/Acosta (V good) - and I was amazed at their rapport. Can't wait for their Romeo and Juliet next spring. Kobborg is becoming my favourite RB dancer and I'm really looking forward to his Colas too. Another point - lots of children at today's performance. Two next to me were very fidgety at first but by the end were cheering and hollering. The more matinees the better, I say. It also stopped so many people rushing out out during the curtain calls to catch late trains, thanks to those interminable intervals.

   With regard to Benjamin, I recently bought a copy of The Oxford Dictionary of Dance by Craine and Mackrell and found out that she is the only RB Principal female dancer who is not lited in it. she is not my favourite, but surely she deserves to be mentioned. What do you think ?

   Benjamin in underrated in my opinion. She has a huge range of roles and generally delivers, even if she is occasionally rather workmanlike. I prefer her Manon and Juliet to Durante, and I love the way she seems to keep her partner in check. maybe that's why she's not paired so often with Acosta! She does seem to be overlooked though.
