Yes, Nicholas Le.Riche, is very good, so is Mathias Heyman, though somewhat younger and taking leading roles in his teens. What about the son of Domanique Kla and Denys Ganio, Mathieu Ganio, again danced La Sylphide James with Aurelie Dupont under 20 years old. All three dancers are with the Paris Opera Ballet. Perhaps one day one of them will fill Manuel Legris shoes now he has retired.

RE Thomas Lund. Here's a set of brief clips from a number of ballets. (Warning: the clips sometimes cut off feet and even head.)

Re: Emmanuel Thibault, here he is as the Golden Idol ...

... and in the Bluebird pdd:



I forgot Emmanual when mentioning the other POB guys. He is a spectacular artist, I have seen him live and on DVD. However when comparing him to Thomas Lund. I think he comes out on top, he has much more style and elevation than the latter to me. But perhaps he does not give the aura of a Prince, but then he probably has not been given the chance to prove himself.
