Sarah Lane may come to the rescue of Cork City Ballet
, which finds itself without a ballerina for "The Sleeping Beauty."
Artistic Director of Cork City Ballet Alan Foley revealed to the Cork News that negotiations are now underway in an effort to secure American Ballet Theatre (ABT) star Sarah Lane, who controversially went public last year and admitted she did most of the dancing for the part that won Portman an Oscar. If the San Francisco-born dancer is secured, she would perform alongside her Madrid-born husband Luis Ribagorda, an ABT corps member whom she married in December 2007.
“We are in discussions with Sarah, who is looking at her schedule with a view to working out an arrangement. If they can’t, then we are in talks with another married couple, where she is the principal ballerina with the New York City Ballet,” said Mr Foley.
