Like the Nutcracker, Giselle is a good place to see corps de ballet dancers in solo roles.  Over four performances this past week, three dancers stood out.


Julia Rowe as the first soloist in the pas de cinq, and as one of the two Wilis:  Technical assurance coupled with a beautiful softness and flow.  Hard to explain, but it’s strangely calming to see variations danced this well.  At the end, you kind of settle back in your seat and think, ‘Ah yes, that’s just how it should be done.’  Very appealing.


Among the men, Wei Wang and Esteban Hernandez in the pas de cinq threw off some glorious pyrotechnics coupled with beautiful lines and excellent batterie.
