In rehearsals for Japan, with Alina Cojocaru

Our bags are packed, our passports prepped - there's a matter of days till we head off to Japan for the second leg of our BRB International 18 tour!

We're so pleased to welcome guest Principals Alina Cojocaru (who will guest in two performances of The Sleeping Beauty in Tokyo alongside Mathias Dingman) and Paris Opera Ballet's Mathias Heymann (who will partner Momoko Hirata in two performances of La Fille mal gardée).

We joined Alina in rehearsal recently for the show - check out these stunning pictures by Andrej Uspenski from the studios!
