Dear Stuttgart-Ballet friends,

I am presently in Rome dancing Giselle (in a choreography by Patrice Bart) with the Ballet Company of the Teatro dell’Opera – in the open air theatre in Caracalla. My partner is Svetlana Zakharova, the Principal Dancer with the Bolschoi Ballet. It is the first time for us to work together, and Svetlana is simply beautiful to dance with!
All in all it is unbelievably romantic to dance Giselle in the moonlight, especially the second act with the magical Willis.

I will be wallowing in romanticism for some more days, and afterwards I am looking forward to returning home to Stuttgart and dance at home, indeed of my favorite parts: The Lenski in John Cranko’s Onegin.

Arrivederci!
Yours, Friedemann
