Onegin: Your views
Tamara Rojo and Adam Cooper as Tatiana and Onegin (Cooper played Prince Gremin in the production reviewed)
Onegin opened the Royal Ballet's winter season
The classic John Cranko ballet Onegin is the first the Royal Ballet has produced under its new director, Australian Ross Stretton.

The ballet is based on the famous poem by Pushkin and has also been made into a film starring Ralph Fiennes in 1999.

"Showing the depth of the Royal Ballet's company, it was beautifully danced by first soloist Mara Galeazzi, while the frivolous Loga was played in perfect character by the young Argentinian soloist Marianela Nunez," says BBC News Online's Steve Schifferes.

But what do you think?

Is this a worthy revival? Is this a good start for Ross Stretton?
