Rasta Thomas, guest performer in 'Giselle'

It's been a dream of mine to finally see this talented young artist in a full-length role & not just 5-minute competition pieces. At long last!

Giselle for those shows will be Michelle Jimenez.
Of interest to DTH fans, Duncan Cooper will do Hilarion on Saturday night.
Another favourite of mine, Jonathan Jordan, will do peasant pdd on Wed., Thurs, Saturday and Albrecht for the Sunday matinee.
And a very young and beautiful dancer, Kara Cooper, will do peasant pdd on Sunday. Watch for her in future.......
