He is a new corps member.He is blonde , strong classical dancer.He did one year at Studio ABT.Before that , he did one year at POB school , last division , like Marcelo Gomes.It's a very good reference and surely helped him to be hired by ABT.He's probably the next soloist.

Mr. Hallberg is turning into ABT's international star it appears. According to his twitter, he was in Italy earlier this month performing at the Balletto dell'Opera di Roma in Sylvia with Polina Semionova. At the moment there are some nice clips on youtube of their performances.

Me too! Congratulations, Gallica, for spotting the Hallberg promise so early and for calling it to BT's attention.. And congratulations, Rosa, for finding that 2001 post and updating it 9 years later. What a story! :clapping:

In addition to the audio of his Nutcracker interview by Leonard Lopate, WNYC.org gives us a brief written Q & A, "Guest Picks," where David notes some of his likes.

Very interesting timing on this post, I've been lately watching all the clips of Hallberg I can find on youtube. His performance of The Dance of the Blessed Spirits in Ukraine just left me speechless.

I couln't agree more with you, little-junkie. It's a real pity there are so few clips of him on YouTube!

He's supposed to perform again in Italy (I'm from Rome, so I know). He is scheduled to perform in a Béjart/Balanchine/Robbins mixed bill in may (I suppose he will perform Tchaikovsky pas de deux, or maybe In the Night by Robbins; final casting hasn't been announced yet, as usual here in Italy :D) and in La Bayadère with Polina Semionova in october, at Rome Opera House. And italian audience loves him! :)

Yes, thank you for posting this. I was at the performance of the company at Jacob's Pillow, and managed to speak with Ms. Ananiashvili and some of the Pillow admins afterwards. It was a very very nice evening, and I was very very happy I could attend and see her perform once again, and with her company.

Many thanks for the link.

The recording of the interview on Ustream lasted about one hour and forty minutes.

The interviewer was Japanese but there was a translator and David Hallberg spoke in English throughout. He discussed his life as dancer from his time in France up until today. He talked about several of his video clips -great use of video/equipment - and also demonstrated some dance steps with some of the participants.

I really enjoyed the interview. It was very interesting and also very amusing.
