Obsidian Tear/Marguerite and Armand/Elite Syncopations, Royal Opera House, review

...The exquisite Alessandra Ferri (still unbelievably supple at 53) came out of retirement to play Marguerite last year and thank goodness for that: she portrays an agonisingly beautiful heroine, teetering on the edge of giddy exuberance and heart-wrenching agony. Her ability to execute technically flawless movement while navigating the character’s complexity is second to none...

Evolution

EVOLUTION. For Alessandra Ferri, stepping back onto stage has gone hand in hand with conquering full awareness of her destiny as a dancer. Being that intimately, with heart, body, and soul.

EVOLUTION is born out of this necessity, as the title runs on the double track of an evolving art that seeks new forms today more than ever, and that of an evolving artist who relentlessly pursues new emotions to be experienced and shared with her audience, diving into the work of choreographers with different  sensibilities and original visions. 

Herman Cornejo, principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre, is once again Ms. Ferri's ally in this new artistic journey. After his groundbreaking experience with Alessandra in Chéri, Cornejo is more and more stimulated to follow her sophisticated artistic and expressive research.

Several International talents will take part in the performance. These are artists from varied backgrounds who intimately share a mutual vision of the art of Dance. It is with them that Alessandra Ferri will dance a number of original and meaningful creations by today's authors, showing us their value, peculiar vision, poetry.

Wolf Works

WOLF WORKS, on the life and works of author Virginia Wolf, is a creation by Wayne McGregor for Ferri and the Royal Ballet premiering at the Covent Garden in London on May 11, 2015.
