I attended the gala tonight - it was absolutely wonderful. However, the order of performances was changed in the second half and a Swan Lake performance was added. I would like to know who the dancers were in the added piece - can anyone tell me ? They were not listed on the printed program or the SF Ballet website cast listing. Thank you !

Once again, Lorena Feijoo and Vitor Luiz showed that sparks fly whenever they dance together. The two of them, plus Daniel Deivison, in Villa-Lobos' sensuous Uirapuru would be a triumph for SF Ballet. I hope it happens while we still have them in the Company. Possokhov seems interested in recognizing the contributions of our Latin American dancers.
