      Thanks for your comment. There is nothing unusual about asking Marcelo Gomes to come in as a guest - dancers from different companies often join the Royal Ballet for a number of shows. Evgenia Obraztsova recently came and did a number of Sleeping Beauties.

  4. I`ve seen videos of Evgenia Obraztsove and think she is so beautyful,she should only come to the West to join the Royal Ballet and/or American Ballet Theathter,she would be a wonderful asset to the ballet world in the West. How about that?
