This weekend concludes the Boston Ballet‘s run of Lady of the Camellias, a scorned lover’s tale after the famed Alexandre Dumas Fils’ 1848 novel by the same name… It felt lovely to be back on stage again, dancing to the brilliant melodies of Chopin amongst dramatic turns of pointe & plot.
I took a few free moments to capture bits of this beautiful story through my own lens, and was excited to invite you all backstage to catch a glimpse from the wings!
The ever-talented Yuri Yanowsky (pictured below with his wife, Kathleen Breen Combes) will be retiring as “Armand Duval” this coming Sunday – See this lovely tribute in the Boston Globe – I dedicate this post to him and the exciting next chapter of his career! I’m so thankful to have shared the stage with such an eloquent artist…
