Wow what an amazing performance. I bought my ticket to this show after I had had seen Ferri and Cornejo dance at the Joyce in March. Alessandra Ferri is an amazing dancer and she had given such commitment to the role. They partner very well together and the whole house was on fire watching their every step throughout the night. I haven't heard the house applaud and roar that loud since Stella Abrera's Giselle last spring season.
I also went to th Q & A after Ferri and Cornejo's performance at the Joyce and a question came up about whether their dancing together was leading to anything else in the future. It was pretty much asking about a possible relationship between them. I remember she didn't answer the question exactly but after tonight's curtain call after seeing them clearly lock lips a few times, they were certainly making a statement. I knew that kind of chemistry on stage had to be real!
An amazing night! I have seen I think 8 performances this ABT season and this definitely this was the best one. This performance just made me so glad to be alive.
