A review of the Uruguay National Ballet by Pablo Bardin for The Buenos Aires Herald.
Since 2009 the company resides at the new National Auditorium Dra. Adela Reta, and this gave them a renewed impulse. In June 2010, Argentine dancer-choreographer Julio Bocca was appointed director of the Ballet. What he has accomplished in little more than three years is astounding. Although I haven’t seen the SODRE Ballet before, Uruguayan as well as international opinion is that there has been a quantum leap in quality. More than 20 ballets from the classics to the moderns have been staged with great success and, judging from the 29 dancers (out of a total 66) that came to BA, their level is high and their discipline and knowledge are evident in their y oung, athletic bodies.
