This is what Manitoba looks like this week where Jared Matthews will debut as Albrecht in the Royal Winnipeg Ballet's production of Giselle on March 7th opposite the company's principal ballerina, Vanessa Lawson. The picture is off of the CTV.ca website which today includes an interview with Ms. Lawson who expressed her enthusiasm for Jared's Albrecht and praised his abilities as an amazing partner and a very strong artist. Jared will dance the role of Albrecht in ABT's Giselle for the first time in Chicago with the debuting and miraculous Yuriko Kajiya on March 25th. Here's hoping that the beautiful snow stays in Manitoba and doesn't mess with Haglund's travel, brunch, and ballet plans on the 25th.
Listen up, Chicago! Sunday March 25th is going to be a historic Giselle that you will not want to miss - the first performance of what could well be the Giselle pairing that will shortly shoot to the top of the hot ticket list everywhere ABT goes. Take a hint from the many people who are making the trip from New York to Chicago just to see this performance and do not miss it!
