Carmens almost acrobatic tours and the rouing energy of the group are heart catching – De Volkskrant
Bizet’s opera lends itself perfectly to making a ballet performance, as the Kiev Ballet company proved. The choreographer Radu Poklitaru makes his prima-ballerina a passionate Carmen. (…) She is challenging, sultry, sensual and suggestive. The corps de ballet with the other leading roles fits in seamlessly with that. – Weekblad Regio Oss
