A friend of ours was just promoted to “Etoile” at Paris Opera Ballet! Here is a video of Eleonora Abbagnato with the legendary Manuel Legris in “Rubies.” She is so subtle and charming, it’s not an easy interrpretation to make.
She was dancing the title role of “Carmen” in Roland Petit’s version. I met her in 2006 while in Paris to see her debut of Swan Lake.
There is also a post below of another Petit ballet called “L’Arlesienne”, she’s brilliant in that too.
