Dear Friends in Stuttgart!

Hello from New York City! Since the weekend I am here with Alina Cojocaru to rehearse for my premiere as Armand in Sir Frederic Ashton’s ballet  Marguerite and Armand. It is a wonderful story ballet in just one act, based on Alexandre Dumas’ famous novel The Lady of the Camellias. Ashton created this piece for the two ballet stars Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev and since then not many other dancers have danced it here, so it is a special honor to us to be dancing this famous choreography now.

There will be two performances tonight and tomorrow night at the New York City Center, as part of the Fall for Dance Festival. We are both excited and looking forward to this.

Love to Stuttgart, yours

Friedemann
