Saw Frola and Lunkina in Paris and thought they were stunning - together and apart.  Certainly the best of the two NBoC casts I saw in this work.  This young Italian is definitely a talent to watch and this role suits him down to the ground.  Here he is rehearsing the ending (minus the inevitable exhaustion at that point):

In many ways I didn't feel the Company presentation was a match on Neumeier's own Hamburg Ballet - but that I suppose was to be expected.  That said, Dylan Tedaldi was thrilling as Nijinksky's brother.  

 

Enjoy.
