One of the most popular editions of The New York Times has repeatedly compared the crowd favorite Rolando Sarabia with a young Mikhail Baryshnikov."

Rolando Sarabia is currently guesting als Basilio in the Royal Ballet of Flanders' New Don Quixote. I saw him on Tuesday (I bought a ticket especially to see him), his first performance of the run. He was the only one with good stage presence, catching my attention the whole time he was on stage. He was also a very caring partner.
However, he did not perform his 3rd act variation and coda, which really disappointed me. I don't know if this was planned or if he got injured during the performance (if he did, I didn't notice a thing). But still, he gave a very enjoyable performance.

It's a shame things didn't work out with ABT after his one guest appearance several years ago.  It seems like ABT would have been the ideal company for him given the kind of dancer he is.
