This is a model that is essentially unknown to British ballet for more than half a century since Alicia Markova and the Festival Ballet back in the 1950s - elsewhere the role model must be Alicia Alonso, the deathless tyrant and icon of Cuban ballet, whom Rojo is known to admire enormously. Reliant as ENB's box office is going to be on Rojo's drawing power as a ballerina, it is a working model likely to force normal expectations into unknown territory.
