The French Danse magazine has just published a lavishly illustrated 5-page interview (in French) with Roberto Bolle: http://www.robertobo...a/170_Danse.pdf

Thanks for posting the above link, kbarber. Bolle posted some photos on his twitter page of his recent performace w. Veronika Part at the opening night at the LA Philharmonic. They look so good together. It's a shame that ABT has not cast them as partners for so many years.

Thanks. I was thinking about the full length ballets at the Met. The Bolle/Part SL of a few years ago was among the best I've seen, but then they were never re-united in subsequent years. I will be seeing them at the Oct 20 performance at City Center.

Thanks for posting that schedule. Looks like he'll skip the fall ABT season the first two weeks of November. He did participate in the City Center season in fall 2012, so this is a disappointment.

I just received a  promotional e-mail regarding Bolle's evening at City Center September 17. They describe one piece, "Prototype," by Volpino, as a "ground-breaking work combining both video and dance as Roberto Bolle duels his virtual double." (I don't see that language on the City Center site just yet... http://www.nycitycen...anceNumber=7440

It does sound interesting, and I wish I could see it, but they must think we're all stupid with short memories. Just a few years ago, Baryshnikov toured extensively with a piece by Millepied, "Years Later," which featured old video of Baryshnikov with today's edition dancing in front. I saw it in Santa Monica, and it was delightful. Here's a NY Times report from May 14, 2009:

I don't see a date on the Volpino piece. Do we know which came first? Has anyone seen the Volpino, which is described as an American premiere?

Don't get me wrong - I love Roberto Bolle as a dancer. He's one of the dancers I look for in deciding which Met programs to see, and I own several of his DVDs from La Scala. I'm just skeptical of that marketing promo for one work and I wonder which came first, "Prototype" or "Years Later." Baryshnikov toured that program extensively for a few years, both in the U.S. and Europe, as well as Israel. So there were plenty of opportunities for others to see it.
