'Chopiniana', 'Scheherezade', 'Firebird'
by Catherine Pawlick - July 17, 2006

It was with great fascination that I watched yet another aspect of Daria Pavlenko’s persona reveal itself in her debut as Zarema in “Scheherezade” this month. With successful portrayals of Odette/Odile and Giselle alongside a host of other roles already in tow, Pavlenko proved that she can dance the sultry sex symbol just as convincingly as the innocent, pure swan or peasant girl.

Stars of the Cuban Ballet

Toba Singer reports in on a speactular gala

The star-studded program included Lorna Feijoo and Nelson Madrigal of Boston Ballet, Xiomara Reyes of ABT, the Sarabia brothers  - Rolando, of Houston Ballet  and Daniel, a member of Boston Ballet, Adiarys Almeida of Cincinnati Ballet, and Alihaydee Carreño of Ballet Classical de Santo Domingo. They were joined by guest dancers, Joaquin De Luz of New York City Ballet, Sara Webb and Randy Herrera of Houston Ballet, and Meagan Finley of McAllen Ballet.

The Black Swan pas de deux from “Swan Lake” is performed by Adiarys Almeida and Joaquin De Luz. They dance with steadfast assurance, and in the case of De Luz, almost a little too much, considering Siegfried's dilemma.  In short order, he is properly bedazzled by his partner...

Alberto Spadolini was a great dancer within the Parisian music-hall environment -- he often choreographed his pieces, was also a figurative painter, decorator, restorer, actor, singer & occasionally writer.

by Rosella Simonari -- June 9, 2006
Kawaguchi’s performance is characterised by jumps and runs in and out of the stage, alternated with poses he articulates on the table-ring in which his limbs are joined together in unusual manners. In one pose he joins his hands on his back and tries to move with his bent legs on the small table.
