Even though we have more than enough reasons to keep on loving and idolizing Angel Corella, he just keeps on giving us more.
Angel is going to put Sarah Lane front and center on his Barcelona stage as Odette/Odile in his company's production of Swan Lake next week! From the Spanish newspaper Pais Cataluna:
Sarah Lane, bailarina solista del American Ballet Theatre, será la artista invitada del Corella Ballet para la primera función de El lago de los cisnes, que la compañía del bailarín español ofrecerá entre el 9 y el 12 de febrero en el Gran Teatro del Liceo de Barcelona.
Sarah's homegrown fans need to stay focused and be optimistic, because Corella Ballet brings its Swan Lake to Detroit at the end of April. We need to know about that casting. Detroit needs everyone's support; so the sooner we know the casting, the sooner we can make flight, hotel, ballet, and restaurant reservations - before wasting money on ABT single tickets.
Don't forget, Corella Ballet will be at City Center with a mixed rep program April 17 - 20. Sell this out, People!
Yes, People, Sarah Lane WILL BE Odette/Odile. Angel is our hero.
