Last performances of Othello. <BR>This afternoon it was Pierre François Vilanoba and Katita Waldo who interpret the main roles. It's not because I'm french, that I will say I saw the best Othello. Vilanoba is Othello, he has the beast instinct, dances with necessary strongh, musicality, fluidity. He completely understands the character. His partnership was absolutely perfect. Really lover of his Desdemone, hated her, love, hate all is fine. The final pdd was absolutely wonderful and his death is a great moment so strongh and full of emotion. Besides him, Katita Waldo is the best dramatical Desdemona even she is certainly not the best technically speaking, but she is Desdemone and her acting is really amazing in all the final scene of the "Ave Maria" and naturly the pdd before her death. This scene is absolutely wonderful. Garcia was again Cassio, more better day after day, I think he would be principal. Damian Smith is also wonderful as Iago as well as Julia Adam whose acting is really a marvellous thing. Alice Lu An Lewintsky in Bianca was better than yesterday night. Corps de ballet was really good too.<BR>Tonight for the ending night it was again Tan and Possokhov, they were wonderful too but don't play at all as Waldo and Vilanoba. Possokhov is more human, he danced like a cat. Here again the last pdd was absolutely perfectly danced. Parrish Maynard doesn't act as Damian Smith, he is more "awful", more devil. <BR>Really this ballet is a wonderful piece, it's a little masterwork, by the intensity of the dance, the quality of pdd, intelligence of movement. All in this ballet is really so well studied. I hope they will add it at POB repertory. <BR>Really good performance, really good ballets and good company I hope you can see it really often. <BR>Garnier was full for the both performance and acclamations prove that SFB has make the good choice in the ballet and in the dancers. At the ending curtain, all the company was here around the Othello dancer to say Goodbye to Paris audience. I hope we will see it very sooner so they were good, brilliant and their repertory really interesting.<BR>Thomasson makes certainly the best choice for the France Capitale with mixed bill typically american ballet and full lenght version of Othello.
