Hee Seo

I wanted to post the recent (gorgeous!) DanceMagazine cover pic and story on Hee Seo in her thread...and couldn't find one. So here is the official opening of a Hee Seo thread!

I have long admired the sublime beauty, line, plastique, musicality, dramatic gifts and 'those buttery arched feet' (a curse as well as a thing of beauty) of Ms. Seo. One of the highlights of the recent ABT season at the Kennedy Center in DC was seeing those 'buttery arched feet' boureeing onto the stage in the opening diagonal of Balanchine's Symphony in C - 2nd movement. Wow!

One of the loveliest DanceMagazine covers in recent memory featured Hee Seo as Aurora, in the May 2013 issue:

Sorry that I couldn't find a bigger online version of this exquisite cover. I bought 'the real thing' and it will be framed once I may obtain her autograph, after the Swan Lake Odette-Odile debut, hopefully.

Story to go with the cover:

Wow! Who will be her partner, do you know? She's dancing Giselle w/ ABT in Minnesota on April 6 so it doesn't seem like she'll much rehearsal time w/ the Mariinsky.

Likely this Giselle is part of the exchange program that is bringing Tereshkina and Shklyarov to ABT in June?

I've never seen her dance but she's cast as Cinderella for my subscription series. Can't wait to see her dance.

My experierence has been that in technically demanding role she doesn't deliver so I've been avoiding her. I'll be interested in reading reviews.
