American Ballet Theatre performed “The Dream” during its spring season at the Metropolitan Opera House. You can read my review for The Faster Times here.
And here is a short excerpt:
“Herman Cornejo’s Puck defies description. It goes without saying that he spends most of his time in the air, but what is even more striking is the way he creates shapes while he’s there–that is to say, with the same vividness and definition he might display if he were on the ground. Not only that, he lives in the music, which makes it all look effortless and twice as magical. He doesn’t overplay the role, or go for laughs, and manages to look both like a magical creature and like himself. He’s simply breathtaking.”
