I was revisiting my "Spectre..."clips on my Youtube account, admiring once more time my favorite Misha's performance
The part requires a bit of perfume, a androgynous, feline quality. Misha simply doesn't have them. He looks too boyish.
[font="Comic Sans MS"][size=2]Baryshnikov here seems to be seducing and inviting the girl, rather than protecting and guiding her. He is 100% boy, even in this piece and his style may not be adequate for this particular role, but God bless him for not being the second ballerina on stage![/size].[/font]
