The Amazing Misty CopelandAmazed in Burning Dreams
Posted 06 November 2004 - 12:44 AM
Friday night Misty Copeland made it perfectly clear why. An astonishing & feral performance.
Others have been good, even fine, in the role but, surely, this is what Peterson had in mind. Even with a splendid performance by Herman Cornejo in the lead male role, the ballet belonged to Misty: gorgeous, ferocious even, totally compelling.
This ballerina of great delicacy & musicality went for broke, took chances & conquered all.

Last season I noticed that she was being given more & more small soloist roles, but this has been a breakout season for her. This was no corps girl in front of us, last night she established herself as a ballerina.

I applaud Misty for having taken on the extra job (and she seems to treat it as a real job) of putting herself in front of youth groups and encouraging -- without candy-coating -- the youngsters to hold fast to their dreams. Ballet has a word for people like that -- mensch.
