Veronika adores Marcelo but unf he is already taken, all she can wish for is a show or maybe two during the season.
I would love to see her with David again, last time the partnership loked really shaky, he avoided quite a few lifts, but I believe he is a much better partner now than he was at that time. Recently he has managed to partner Zakharova and Semionova, both really tall, very strongly. If he is scared of getting injured partnering Veronika, then it wont happen i guess., but if there is a minimun chance, this is to me the dream partnership, since they are prob the two most beautifully proportionated dancers today, and one of the most refined.
Bolle looked great with her on stage, but he was surprinsingly weak in the partnering department, and avoided a couple of tough lifts as well. Veronika is not only tall, she has a heavier frame than most of other tall ballerinas.
On the other hand, Ratmansky Nutcracker pdd has a lof of crazy liftings (a couple of them similar to some of the most difficult ones in the final pdd in manon), and it looks like Marcelo did very well with her. Kevin said in an interview that she was "out of this world" in that..so then Kevin, why cant you guys give her a juliet or a giselle, or manon ????? If you guys read this board, people are screaming for the chance, and yes..give her 2 SL next yr too pls
I am also in the group who can see her odette 7 nights in a row.
Cory, acting wise, is still far from an ideal partner for Veronika. Still after the very weak SL, he came a lot stronger in Corsaire , and the partnership looked really good, there are quite some tough liftings there. So maybe he is the best choice for her today. He also has gorgeous lines and is one of the few who is taller than her, even when she is on point.
I am a huge fan of Veronika, since I believe she is the type of ballerina that you can rarely find around, pure classicism, one of the best lines out there and an upper body trully representative of the best of Vaganova's school. So, if Cory is the only choice, be it, rather see her doing new roles with him than not getting anything.I beleive he has potential and maybe, only maybe, a partnership can develop over time.
Foster is very tall and strong, he may be another good choice, he is a work in progress but I really liked a lot what I saw in the opening night gala, I think there may be a lot of potential there too.....and how about a try out with Vasiliev
you never know, ha
on another note, since Gilliam seems to have succeded with her Juliet, is there any chance to see her as Giselle ? I know she may not look like the ideal Giselle, but given her trememndous artistic development, I would love to see her trying this. Sometimes I feel abt management is very rigid classifying the home ballerinas. I wonder also, if they will give Giselle to Semionova, since she was casted as Myrtha this seasson. I am not sure if Semionova will be given all the lyrical roles, like Manon, juliet, tatiana, etc. She certainly has danced it all, but it will be interesting to see whats abt decision regarding her castings, now that she is a full time.
