Yes, very interesting indeed.
"I don't play handsome princes or anything," he laughs. "I don't do ballets like Swan Lake or Sleeping Beauty or Nutcracker, I don't get away with those roles.
"It's not that I don't understand or appreciate them, but there are people who do it a hell of a lot better than me and I don't really have a great interest in doing them."
Instead, Watson prefers the Kenneth MacMillan repertoire, or more modern works from Wayne MacGregor or Christopher Wheeldon.
Clearly Mr Watson is aware of his limitations and I can't help but admire him for that. One of my ballet going highlights the year so far was seeing him dance in the Royal Opera's Acis and Galatea together with Daniele de Niese: a remarkable performance.
Many thanks for posting this, Alison.
