Drew, I hope you're wrong about Simkin still looking too slight. We'll see on Wednesday. I certainly wish him the best and, of course, 'his best' would benefit dear Isabella in her own debut. I have a crazy feeling that their pairing will yield some unexpected surprises.


Very much hoping so!

When he did do the Bronze Idol in Bayadere he looked very thin but danced wonderfully. He looked like a little doll though, and that works for the Bronze Idol (looked like a statue instead of a human). Please report how he does....he deserves leading roles b/c he's talented, but his look might hold him back. Hope not!

Well, 'The Kid' became The Man yesterday, in his Swan Lake debut. Kudos and tons of RESPECT to Danil' Simkin. That was extraordinary...not matter how young he looked. He gave the role of Siegfried a totally new twist and made it work for him. I had hoped for the best but honestly didn't expect to see what I saw.

Great to hear! Hope he dances it next season again. Maybe I can catch it then! This is very heartening news!
