I went to see my fellow countryman and wow...does he still electrifies the air around him..!


More to come, but as a starter, the program included bits of Balanchine-(Apollo, Rubies), MacMilllan-(Mayerling, Winter Dreams, Gloria, Requiem, Fokine-(Sheherezade, Mort du Cygne), Vaganova-(D&A), Ashton-(Rhapsody), and Wheeldon-(Tryst).

Christian, you may be interested to know that in a dance packed year at the Coliseum, Acosta is the only dancer able to achieve a completely sold out week.  One of the very few dancers in the UK with a profile that extends beyond the ballet fans, he fully deserves his popularity as he earned it the hard way not just through the efforts of the RB PR machine.
