    Wonderful to see the very gifted Mayara Magri cast as Mercedes. Cannot wait to see her again.

    I think Valentino Zacchetti will be great as Espada. We're booked in for Jan 3rd though!

    Great to see that Mayara Magri is making her début! Also the fantastic Valentino Zucchetti and the beautiful Claire Calvert! A good move by the Royal Ballet I think!
    Good luck to them and their future.

    Why is Mayara Magri still a member of the corps? She´s very young but quite mature in her technique and quality of movement and exceptionally gifted.
