Dragos Mihalcea performed a quiet Theseus, who aside from flirting with the court ladies is in love with Hippolyta. As Oberon, ruler of the forest creatures, he is magnificent.

Beatrix Balacs og Dragos Mihalcea har en pas de deux i andre akt og den er en henrivende og fortryllende opplevelse, hvor de uhyre samstemt utfører de kompliserte variasjonene til den minste detalj og med en uvanlig letthet og selvfølgelig eleganse. Det er som om man fryser på ryggen og hårene reiser seg.
Det er fint å kunne oppleve en gjestedanser som fyller denne rollen på en slik måte

As Prince Desire, Romanian dancer Dragos Mihalcea unleashes a whirl of devilishly accurate grand jetes that resemble slow-motion splits. Their pas de deux, a truly theatrical climax, creates one dancer from two.
