hi! i was just wondering who your favorite dancers are?
Hello! There’s quite a long list…I’ll try to narrow it down to my absolute favourites, and dancers that I have seen perform / are currently dancing with companies / etc. I do admire the usual suspects, however - Nureyev, Misha, Fonteyn, and the like.
I’m absolutely in love with the ensemble at Stuttgart. In particular, Friedemann Vogel, Marijn Rademaker, Sue Jin Kang, Evan McKie, Alexander Jones, and Alicia Amatriain. Such a talented company!
At ABT, I think Daniil Simkin, Roberto Bolle, Julie Kent, Gillian Murphy, Paloma Herrera, Angel Corella, Sarah Lane, and David Hallberg are absolutely wonderful.
Andrei Merkuriev, Ivan Vasiliev, and Natalia Osipova from the Bolshoi are brilliant, too. I’m also fond of Chi Cao from the Birmingham Royal Ballet and Yuhui Choe from the Royal Ballet. Need to mention Polina Semionova, Mathieu Ganio, and Isabelle Ciaravola as well.
There’s a plethora of fantastic dancers at the National Ballet of Canada: Jiri Jelinek (formerly of Stuttgart), Xiao Nan Yu, Greta Hodgkinson, Guillaume Côté, and Aleksandar Antonijevic are obvious standouts. Zdenek Konvalina, too - but he’s just left the company for the English National Ballet, it seems. In the up-and-coming category, I predict that Chelsy Meiss, Naoya Ebe, Brendan Saye, Elena Lobsanova, and Dylan Tedaldi will do great things.
Clearly I wasn’t able to narrow it down, haha. But there you go, my favourite dancers as of right now!
hey! i really loved the video of alice's adventures in wonderland ballet, but i didn't found this for download.. do you know where can i know it?
The video clip I posted a while back, along with the others that are available online (the Queen of Hearts’ tart adagio, the Flower Garden scene, and the Caterpillar) can all be found here, here, and here. To my knowledge these are the only full clips from the ballet that are posted! I have heard that they might be releasing it on DVD at some point in September. So to answer your question, your best bet is to download the clips from YouTube, seeing as there isn’t anything else uploaded at this point. If you’re referring to the pictures from the ballet, some are official releases and others were taken within performances.
Regardless, I’m glad you’ve enjoyed what you’ve seen of the ballet so far! It’s an amazing production.
