Tamara Rojo on Don Q
Posted 29 October 2001 - 01:27 PM
A Dancer from Spain talks about ballet's Spanish Ballet classic -- an interesting interview with Tamara Rojo:
This Lady is Not Just for Turning
Tamara Rojo transfixed her audience when she danced Giselle for the Royal Ballet last year, and her latest role, as Kitri in 'Don Quixote', is sure to be just as dazzling. She talks to Louise Levene

Darcey Bussell said a similar thing in her book about the really dramatic roles gripping you so you are still in character when you take a curtain call. I'm sure the last thing the dancers want to do is suddenly come back down to earth after "being" Juliet/Manon etc!
I'm going to see Tamara in Don Q next Monday so i'm sure i'll have something more to say then! smile.gif

That first night performance was actually very poor - in fact it was so bad I seriously thought of not going to any more of the performances I had booked. Thankfully the other two performances I have seen were so much better which although pleasing, emphasised just how bad the first night was.
