Johan Kobborg: I once met a girl. We weren’t really supposed to meet, but when we did, everything changed.I was Romeo then and She a very young Juliet, and last minute substitute for my indisposed scheduled partner. It was to be Her time, and it was the beginning of Our time. If ever there was an alignment of lucky stars lined up for me, my Juliet and for us, then this was the moment. This was Prokofiev and Shakespeare playing out at their finest.

Decades later, and I feel as if the stars have yet again aligned themselves somehow and yet again around this ever relatable love story Romeo and Juliet. ”

Creating this on Alina and Sergei, has been a mind-blowing dream come true, and what they have brought to the process from day One has been nothing short of an inspirational revelation. What an honour.

They together with the entire cast has made this journey a truly memorable experience for me, and they have blessed me and the production with true dedication every single step of the way.
