amnisias: (Default)
I found out yesterday that Sergei Polunin will be dancing Giselle at Naples San Carlo Theatre in August (yay for facebook on this count). And managed to get A) tickets (for peanuts, compared to Royal Ballet prices), B) a flight and C) a travel companion. I'm so stoked, you wouldn't believe it.

Polunin was the Principal Dancer at the Royal Ballet in London (youngest ever, at 19), and I'd heard (and seen) so many great things about him, but I kept posponing to go and see him because I was holding out for the perfect role, maybe Spartacus, or Romeo in the Nureyev choreography. And then he Polunin left the Royal Ballet 'over night' in 2012, to dance in Russia. And then he left there and announce that he might quit ballet altogether. So now I'm wiser, and I take what I can get, while I can get it, Well, given his track record, he might drop out last minute, but if not at least I've seen him live once. And on top of that I get a long summer weekend in Italy, and hopefully can swing by Pompei as well. Total win!

For all of those who won't be making the tip to Naples (yup, I'm gloating just a tiny little bit) I'm leaving you with this:
