i had jared matthews for von rothbart in both of the performances i saw. i've seen marcelo do von rothbart on youtube, and it was amazing, so i was slightly disappointed with jared's interpretation. i wish i saw sascha instead!

True, Marcelo is the King of von Rothbarts and we were indeed cheated out of a fantastic performance when he had to switch roles to Siegfried in that opening Swan Lake in order to cover for Bolle. Sascha's characterization of von Rothbart was very strong, but Jared's dancing was stronger - though neither approached what Marcelo is able to do with the role.
