On 6th February it was my absolute honour to dance the world premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s reconstruction of Swan Lake at Zürich Opera House in Switzerland. I had an amazing time and would love to thank Alexei Ratmansky his passion, knowledge and enthusiasm in rehearsals, and also to allow me to have the honour to be his dancer for the premiere.

New York Times

Financial Times: ***** ‘Triumphant’ 

Backtrack: **** Viktorina Kapitonova, a Russian trained principal of the Ballett Zürich, made the evening an otherworldly vision. Graceful, long-limbed and definitely swanish, she powered through the 19th century unfamiliar choreography with needle-sharp precision.
