Diana Vishneva's (@dianavishneva) farewell from ABT (@abtofficial) while held by Marcelo Gomes (@marcelua)...
Alessandra Ferri yesterday during page bows at the end of the show of Onegin at the Metropolitan Opera.
Cannot wait to perform this solo in Act 2 of Onegin tonight again with ABT (@abtofficial)! This is from 5 years ago... how time flies.
Last night's family photo: Sarah Lane (@sarahlaneps103) as Olga, yours truly (daniil) as Lenski, Alessandra Ferri as Tatjana and Roberto Bolle (@robertobolle) as Onegin! One more show tomorrow!
Taking some inspiration from @alexhammoudi and @balletmoods I created this little meme to depict how we feel right now using @sarahlaneps103's and yours truly's final jumps in Swan Lake off a cliff onto... the weekend (aka a semi-soft blue mat). Thanks to @jillelainahaley for the video.
So this happened last night! With a culmulative amount of 4 reharsals Sarah Lane (@sarahlaneps103) rose to the occasion and performed her ABT (@abtofficial) debut of the title role Odette/Odile on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House (@metopera)! Kudos to our Rothbarts Grayson Davis (@graysongray86) and Alban Lendorf (@albanlendorf) for an exciting show as well!
After 4 shows, 12 revoltades/540, 16 double assemblés, a few barrel jumps and a few pirouettes on the Metropolitan Opera stage I'm happy Corsaire week is over. Onto Swan Lake next week! By the way, a shoutout to my cuban brother @osielgouneo who actually showed me the pirouette above... #CreditWhereCreditIsDue
Family portrait of our cast this afternoon in Corsaire! Congrats to Alban Lendorf (@albanlendorf) and Christine Shevchenko (@seeshevydance) for two exciting debuts and Stella Abrera (@stellaabreradetsky) and Gabe Stone Shayer (@gabestoneshayer) for a fun show! #ImNotFlexingAtAll

Happy 20th anniversary at ABT (@abtofficial), Marcelo (@marcelua)!
Off to my NY debut as Albrecht in Giselle with ABT (@abtofficial) at the MET alongside Sarah Lane (@sarahlaneps103)... can't wait to, literally and figuratively, almost dance to death. Photo by @patrickfrenette
