Roberto Bolle and Friends


Celebrating the ballet in its various forms has become a vocation for Roberto Bolle, the most beloved Italian danseur. Noted for his Apollonian proportions, Bolle owes his success to a strict discipline that established him as an étoile “shining” simultaneously in the skies of La Scala, Milan, and the American Ballet Theater, New York, and as a star of the small screen as well. Trained in classical ballet, Bolle is an icon of Terpsichore, and has no problem leaving his comfort zone. His galas easily feature Petipa’s “golden age” alongside Jiří Kylián’s nervous humanism, but there is always room for some technological goodies or even little “amusements” built on his golden proportions. And his fans are always pleased by his bevy of first-class artists in the name of perfection.
