(I got more Mariinsky tickets at the ROH for those who are wondering)
May I just say… Up until about 3 hours ago I really was not a big fan of Somova. But now all has changed!! She was the PERFECT Juliet, she is a fantastic actress and while her technique wasn’t spot on all the time - it doesn’t matter, her charisma and charm carried her through. I went to the theatre expecting tacky extensions and uneven classical lines but she went further than proving me wrong, I would now say she is probably one of my favourite Juliets!
ALSO, Kim Kimin is DEFFFFFFINITELY one to watch! Wonderful stage presence.
