Why See Alessandra Ferri?
Ballet Icon Alessandra Ferri Comes To Detroit
Whilst most professional ballet dancers retire at age 40, prima ballerina Alessandra Ferri is an exceptional force of nature, performing jaw-dropping jetes and gravity-defying leaps well into her 50s. Thanks to a combination of determination, fierce artistry and luck (Ferri has never had a career-ending fall or injury), she continues to grace the world's foremost stages, breaking barriers and new ground with every pirouette. The dance icon joins some of ballet's leading performers for an evening of poetic dance as part of Michigan Opera Theatre's 2018/19 Dance Series, just in time for Valentine's Day!
Beginning her illustrious career as one of the Royal Ballet's youngest ever principal dancers at the age of 19, the Italian ballerina went on to dance with all time greats of the discipline Rudolf Nureyev and Mikhail Baryshnikov, has performed with leading companies including the American Ballet Theatre and Milan's La Scala Ballet (of which she was the prima ballerina assoluta) and made special guest performances around the world. Ferri brings her spine-tingling talent to Detroit for a program of works including Petipa's Don Quixote, Lar Lubovich's Concerto Six Twenty Two, Wayne McGregors' Witness and Christopher Wheeldon's After The Rain.
Performance date: 16 February 2019
