This video excerpt from Russian television broadcast of the Bolshoi Theatre shows what David Hallberg wants more of … detailed personal coaching on Russian ballet classicism. He’s had a taste of it, and he’s going back for more. Apparently ABT could not offer him this. Otherwise why would he go?
But you gotta laugh at Hallberg’s facial expression at 2:29. Oy!
Just want to take this opportunity to memorialize yet another beautiful, tall, blonde ballet prince. It’s the Bolshoi man, Alexander Godunov, who died prematurely, in 1995, in Los Angeles, about two miles from where I now write.
