Please list up to three dancers who you think are the greatest Sugar Plum Fairy and/or Nutcracker Prince among current dancers.

Please use these threads to vote only, so that they're easy to tally. You can argue elsewhere.

This thread will be closed at noon PST on 1 February 2013. For details about the project, please see this thread:

Allow me to ask a couple of questions:

Dancers whom we ought to have seen very recently live in the role or others whom we have seen in the past in the role and haven't perform it either in a while or not anymore and are still roster members...?

Only live performances or video also...?

In any case, if going for live performances, then..

Fee Dragee: Lorna Feijoo, Alihaydee Carreno, Jeanette Delgado

Prince Coqueluche: Osmay Molina, Rolando Sarabia, Renato Panteado

The request was, "We want to hear from you who you think are some of the most exciting dancers today performing the iconic roles of the megahits of Classical Ballet. "

I think that means dancers who are performing the role now.

I don't see any distinction being made between live or recorded, including YouTube, performances.
