My memory is rusty on him in this, but really I think getting Gomes is always a good thing.
He is an incredibly dedicated and engaged dancer who is one of the most fantastic partners around. Superb technically, but also at creating emotional connections with his partners. I know there should be reviews of him in the role in the archives of the NYTimes online...

I wouldn't worry too much about that. He really has the ability to make any partner look marvelous, it is really one of his great gifts. And while given the relative lack of tall strong men at ABT he often partners the taller women, he does partner smaller ones as well on occasion, and I've never heard nor observed it to be an issue.
I look forward to reports!
