Angel’s Farewell

Sad news today: The wonderful Angel Corella, who always seems so happy onstage, will end his career as a principal with American Ballet Theatre this June. Yes, he’ll still be plenty busy—he’s the artistic director of Barcelona Ballet, which is earning raves all over the world. (The company comes to NYC in a couple of weeks.) But I’ll miss his performances with ABT, where his gargantuan jump and equally enormous presence have been thrilling audiences for 17 years.

Here’s Corella bringing down the house as Ali, the slave, in Le Corsaire with ABT. Merde for your next step, Angel!
