ALESSANDRA FERRI TO RETIRE AS PRINCIPAL DANCER
WITH AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE

Final Performance Scheduled for June 23, 2007 with Guest Artist Roberto
Bolle


Principal Dancer Alessandra Ferri has announced she will retire
from American Ballet Theatre following a 22-year career with the Company.
She will dance her final performance in the role of Juliet in Sir Kenneth
MacMillan¹s Romeo and Juliet on Saturday evening, June 23, 2007 at the
Metropolitan Opera House. In her final bow as Juliet, Ferri will dance
opposite Guest Artist Roberto Bolle as Romeo.

Ferri was born in Milan, Italy and studied at Teatro alla Scala
until the age of 15 when she joined The Royal Ballet School. Ferri joined
The Royal Ballet in 1980 and danced leading roles in The Sleeping Beauty,
The Two Pigeons, Swan Lake, Mayerling, the title role in Manon and Juliet in
Romeo and Juliet. She created roles in Sir Kenneth MacMillan¹s Valley of
Shadows and A Different Drummer, as well as Anna in Seven Deadly Sins. She
danced Odette in Franco Zeffirelli¹s Swan Lake in Milan, and the title role
in Roland Petit¹s Carmen with the London Festival Ballet (now English
National Ballet).

Ferri joined American Ballet Theatre as a Principal Dancer in
1985. Her roles with the Company include the title role in Anastasia,
Nikiya in La Bayadère, the pas de deux from Roland Petit¹s Carmen, Titania
in The Dream, Katherine in Christopher Wheeldon¹s VIII, The Accused in Fall
River Legend, the Glove Seller in Gaîté Parisienne, the title roles in
Giselle and Manon, Hanna Glawari in The Merry Widow, Tatiana in Onegin, the
pas de deux Other Dances, the Youngest Sister in Pillar of Fire, Juliet in
Romeo and Juliet, a featured role in Sinfonietta, Princess Florine in The
Sleeping Beauty, the leading role in Some Assembly Required, the Sylph in La
Sylphide, the leading role in Les Sylphides and Katherina in The Taming of
the Shrew.

A permanent guest artist with La Scala in Milan, Ferri has also
appeared with the Ballet National de Marseille in Roland Petit¹s Le Diable
Amoreux, which Petit created especially for her. Other guest appearances
have included the role of Juliet in John Cranko¹s Romeo and Juliet with
National Ballet of Canada, Manon with Kirov Ballet, Blanche Du Bois in A
Streetcar Named Desire, Tatiana in Onegin and Katherina in The Taming of the
Shrew with Stuttgart Ballet, and the title role in Roland Petit¹s Carmen and
Esmeralda in Notre Dame de Paris with Paris Opera Ballet. She has also
appeared with the National Theatre of Tokyo, the Colon Theatre in Buenos
Aires and the Ballet Nacional de Cuba.

Ferri won the Prix de Lausanne in 1980 and the Sir Laurence
Olivier Award in 1982 (for her role in Valley of Shadows). In 2005, Ferri
celebrated her 20th year with ABT. In the same year, she received the honor
of Cavaliere della Repubblica Italiana by the President of the Italian
Republic.

Guest artist Roberto Bolle, Ferri¹s partner for her final
performances with American Ballet Theatre, has been a Resident Guest Artist
at La Scala since 1998. Bolle trained at Teatro alla Scala and joined La
Scala Ballet in 1994. He was promoted to principal dancer with the company
in 1996. His repertory at La Scala includes The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake,
La Bayadère (Makarova), Giselle (Guillem), Le Spectre de la Rose, Romeo and
Juliet, Onegin and Apollon Musagète, among others. The 2007 Metropolitan
Opera House season marks Bolle¹s first appearance with American Ballet
Theatre.

In addition to Ferri¹s performance as Juliet on June 23, she is
scheduled to dance Desdemona in Othello and the title role in Manon.

Veronika Part sent four of us an e-mail today saying that she had an injury this morning and will be out for the season. She was scheduled to perform tomorrow and Saturday. I wish her a very quick recovery.

ABT offers modern ballet gems in its fall season
by DEBORAH JOWITT for the Village Voice
published: October 23, 2006

As the ballet progresses, I feel like a beginner in an advanced conversation class in Hungarian. I recognize some of the lingo—arabesque, développé, grand jeté—but can't follow the top-speed idiomatic kinks that precede, follow, and accompany them.
