P.S. People purchasing tickets to see Ferri later in the season should probably double check casts, since word is that she will be out for the season.

I always liked her; nice quality of movement and everything, but like so many interesting talents in the Royal Ballet of Flanders, she was just wasted. Last saw her here as Florine in the Blue Bird pas de deux, outclassing about everybody in the cast, including the Aurora. I hope she will be doing fine in ABT.

I think you pronounce it as if it began with a "Z."
I saw her last week as one of the shades in La Bayadere. She danced very well, had a nice jump and appeared strong technically.
She has a large head -- with a face that resembles Leslie Caron to me -- and doll-like body. I think many found her charming but I don't go in for the "Aren't I just the prettiest thing" way she had of flirting with the audience. But I think that's just my preference for more aloof dancers. I'd be interested in seeing her in other things. She'd probably make a fantastic Blue Bird.

Ferri is pregnant and she's already cancelled her engangement with La Scala at the State Theater this coming July. She's scheduled to dance "Onegin" and "the Merry Widow" but I don't know if she's going to dance at this time.
