Thanks rq, that was lovely. Hallberg a well-spoken and clearly serious artist. His Romeo this last Met season was simply breath taking.

David is a very thoughtful and introspective artist. He does some excellent photography as well. Thanks for the link to the interview. It was great to see how he gets "into" his character intellectually. How this is manifest in his dancing is not articulated and is the magic and the genius these artists possess.

What a treat to be able to hear a dancer speak so clearly and thoughtfully about the role and how he develops it into dance. Halberg's openness to suggestion from coaches, Georgina Parkinson in this case, is admirable.
