I love this sentence from her bio, especially the 2nd and 3rd clauses:

 

"Veronika Part has appeared in projects run by the Kennedy Center and the Metropolitan Opera; has appeared with Roberto Bolle, Gustavo Dudamel, David Letterman and Marcelo Gomes; has collaborated with Suzanne Farrell, Judith Jamison and Chita Rivera."

 

(And when did she collaborate with Chita Rivera?!)

 

Can I get a visa in time for Aug. 1?

 

No Giselle last year at ABT, right?  So we're thinking maybe 2015?  (They seem to do it two years on, one year off.)  And she recently danced in in Baltimore as well.  So maybe she's ready to bring it home to NYC??

I wouldn't count on Part getting a Giselle at ABT.  KM seems to have fixed ideas of dancers. Seo Hee and Isabella Boylston can do everything and others in his eyes are more limited.  Don't get me wrong, I admire Boylston and Hee in some roles but they are thrown into lots of things that they flounder in, while chances are withheld from others.

When did she "collaborate" with Farrell? Did Farrell coach her before she did Terpsichore with the Kirov?

 

Anyhow, congratulations Ms. Part! This is exciting news.

Congrats to Part.  I used to think that McKenzie denied her certain roles like Juliet and Giselle because of her height and the difficulty of lifts.  However, since he has been giving the very tall Semionova all those roles, it is apparent that height was not the deciding factor in his mind.  I hope someone posts clips of Part's performance on You Tube.

Congratulations to Veronika Part! Though she is a commanding Myrtha, Part may be even more well-suited to the role of Giselle, especially the beautiful adagio sections of Act II. I felt as if her dancing stopped time when she appeared Les Sylphides last year, and I hope her artistry in Romantic roles will be nurtured by ABT. Her use of her upper body is still one of the major treasures of the dance world, and how could one not want to see what she would do with those arms in Giselle? Part did dance La Sylphide when it last appeared at the Met, but that was several years ago and I no longer have a vivid recollection of the performance.

 

Her NY fans will be there in spirit on August 1, throwing more bouquets onto the pile!

Brava Veronika!!!!

 

Someone on the ABT wishlist thread wished for Fabrice Calmels as a guest artist to partner he. That would be my wish too - they'd make an incredible Giselle & Albrecht.

That would be a tragedy for those of us in the US who adore her. I must say that among her many accomplishments, for me she is still the world's reigning Swan Queen.

The only possible consolation for that would be the fact that we'd be far more likely to finally get some good video recordings while she's still in her prime.  It's a tough call: 5-7 more years of live performances in NYC, or a lifetime of being able to watch her onscreen in a few of her signature roles.  I really don't know which I'd choose!

For her sake, I hope the Mariinsky does lure her back---she is a likely successor to Lopatkina---and she will finally get the recognition she deserves.  {Plus, if Nanushka is right

we will get those recordings!)flowers.gif
