Roberto Bolle Has Some Pretty Cool Friends
Soooo pretty. (photo by Luciano Romano)
International ballet star Roberto Bolle is one beautiful, talented guy. And since beautiful, talented people tend to attract other beautiful, talented people, the lineup for his upcoming Roberto Bolle and Friends gala is, unsurprisingly, really impressive.
Bolle himself put together the program for the one-night-only event, which you can catch Tuesday, September 17 at New York City Center. It includes classic favorites like Dying Swan and a pas de deux from John Cranko’s Romeo and Juliet, as well as edgier pieces by Russell Maliphant and Mauro Bigonzetti.
But the real doozy is the cast list: Stuttgart Ballet principal Alicia Amatriain, American Ballet Theatre principal Herman Cornejo, San Francisco Ballet principal Maria Kochetkova, Mariinsky Ballet principal Alina Somova, Bayerisches Staatsballett principal Lucia Lacarra and more. Plus Bolle, of course. (If you don’t know any of those names, please go have some fun on YouTube. Because trust me: A little quality time with these gorgeous dancers will be a lot of fun.)
The best part? Tickets start at just 25 bucks. Click here to get yours—then check out this kind of wild video featuring Bolle, which is actually a sneak peek at one of the gala program’s works, Prototype, by Massimiliano Volpini.
