ABT's 2012 Nutcracker and Herman Cornejo
Posted 22 November 2012 - 06:53 AM
We have a lovely Thanksgiving Day shaping up here in upstate New York - warm enough to comfortably celebrate outside a bit.
I was on the ABT website yesterday for Nutcracker performances to find that Herman Cornejo (dancing with Xiomara Reyes) has been replaced with Eric Tamm. For my part, I am so disappointed because I really love his dancing and I was looking forward to seeing Xiomara and Herman dance together. They seem like a perfect ballet partnership and complement each other. I've never seen them dance together except in the Swan Lake DVD.
Does anyone know? Was Herman injured? I hope not.

The injury was a torn calf muscle, according to this interview with him by Marina Harss for Dance Tabs. Torn calf muscles are incapacitating, but not uncommon, and dancers recover well from them.
Very very interesting interview. Thank you for posting. His comments about the company's turnover in corps dancers and also "tricks" on stage are...interesting.
