Starting my 9th season with ABT (@abtofficial) at the Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center tomorrow. First show is on Wed, May 16 where I‘ll be dancing Albrecht alongside Sarah Lane as Giselle. Here the incomparable, irreplaceable and epic Irina Kolpakova showing me how it‘s done. To my defense, we were doing different versions... brief appearances by Sarah Lane (@sarahlaneps103), Cory Stearns (@cory_stearns) with Jacek Mysinsky (@jacekmysinski) at the piano.
A little #throwback to 5 years ago dancing Prince Desiree with the @royalswedishballet in Stockholm.
Working currently very hard on the preparations for our season at the @metopera with ABT (@abtofficial). Taking part in both world premieres this season: Harlequinade by Alexei Ratmansky and AfteRite by Wayne McGregor... all while preparing Albrecht in Giselle which we‘re opening with and then just Romeo & Mercutio in McMillan‘s R&J, Prince Siegfried in Swan Lake and the boy in Whipped Cream... oh and Basilio in Don Quixote. #theMarathonBeginsInAWeek Pic: The current issue of @danceforyoumagazine in Germany, photo by @nycdanceproject

And back in Berlin for a few days. One more photo from this week’s show at the Teatro Colon (@teatrocolon). After a month of travels I’m finally flying back in three days to NY to get ready for our spring season with ABT (@abtofficial)! Yay!
Que muy muy fuerte... danced my second and last show in Buenos Aires at the Teatro Colon (@teatrocolon) yesterday and am already on my way back to Berlin for a few days. I had a great time dancing in this very special theater and will treasure those moments onstage forever. Per usual the rest of the time was filled with Bife de chorizo, Malbec, Alfajores and friends. Me gusto mucho Buenos Aires.
ABT (@abtofficial) reunion at the Teatro Colon! Dancing “Ali, the slave” in “El Corsario” tomorrow evening alongside Maria Kochetkova (@balletrusse) and Herman Cornejo (@hermancornejo) as Medora and Conrad. Thank you to Paloma Herrera for inviting us and to Julio Bocca for staging it. Let’s bring it onnnn
