ABT's Sarah Lane to guest with Corella Ballet in Barcelona, Feb.9

9 posts in this topic

It has been reported in the Spanish press (Ballet y Mas), and by Corella Ballet, that ABT soloist Sarah Lane will be a guest artist with the company at the Liceu Theatre in Barcelona, Spain. She will be performing (O/O?) with Angel Corella, opening night (February 9th). And don't we wish we could be there to see it?!

I got to watch her rehearsing Swan Lake after company class today at the Kennedy Center. Herman Cornejo was helping her on Thursday. I don't know who was partnering her today. I did not recognize him.

I'd love to see her do it. Unfortunately Kevin M. won't afford us that opportunity because of her height (IMO)

Sorry, I didn't know how to do a link to a translated version of the article. Hope the video works ok; the footage is good, and her interview great (esp. when asked about "Black Swan"). Wish I could have been at the Liceu to see it.

(FYI: Corella Ballet--now called "Barcelona Ballet" after their move there--will be performing SL in Detroit in late April 2012.)

Thank you so much. She doesn't dance like a short person. This is a very nice video. I'd love to see her get more opportunities in ABT. I think she is just not the "type" that the AD favors.

Thank you som

Lovely to look at, all credit to the dancers, but the antagonist's costume looks like it should be in "Where the Wild Things Are".

I'm thinking of Makarova, Kirkland, Cojocaru and others, and I'm afraid I don't know what you mean. Would you care to elaborate?

I think the "type" the AD favors these days is the "type" known as foreign guest star. It seems to me that it would be in the company's long-term interest to nurture dancers through the ranks. So much promising talent reaches the soloist level and seems to stall there. What happens? Have they all achieved their maximum potential? It's not impossible, but I can't believe it.
