Thank you for publishing the clip of [font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3]Lorna Feijoo. What a glorious upper body and port de bras she has![/size][/font]

Yes...she truly knew-(know)-how to work those accents. That's why we called her "The Queen of Accents"...Posted Image

Also, for those familiar with the Four Jewels of the National Ballet of Cuba, the great, strong Aurora bosh was not known for her Giselle...(it seems as she danced it, as the pic below states)-but she was definitely the best Myrtha I've ever seen.

Here's Bosch as the Queen of Willis at the youthful age of 49.

Lorna Feijoo is a great artist from what I can tell! I like some of the extra touches the Cuban mise en scene has like Giselle kissing the flowers and giving them to Albrecht before someone backstage pulls her away.
