Congratulations to Lendorf - it is indeed well deserved!

Nikolaj Hübbe stated his reasons for promoting Alban Lendorf this way (my go at a translation):

"At rare intervals it happens, that our art form is rewarded with a dancer of completely indisputable and invariable talent and charisma. It is a blessing to the art form, to the audience and to us here in the ballet. Such a talent and such a dancer MUST be honoured and promoted. He has already made an almost meteoric career. And he is a young, up-and-coming lion, whose dance sends everybody into raptures, and you can only sit back, gaping – and applaud."

The Danish original (if anyone should wish to compare... :wink: ):

"En sjælden gang imellem sker det, at vores kunstart beriges med en danser af fuldstændig uomtvistelig og ufravigelig talent og karisma. Det er lykken for kunstarten, for publikum og for os – her i balletten. Et sådan talent og en sådan danser SKAL hædres og promoveres. Han har allerede gjort nærmest kometagtig karriere. Og er en ung, fremadstormende løve, som evner at danse, så alle henrykkes, og man kun kan sidde tilbage, måbende - og klappe."
