The "ballet world's Cary Grant" arrives with ABT next week

With the much anticipated arrival of American Ballet Theatre's Giselle next week, audiences will have ample opportunities to see many of ABT's greatest star dancers, including Julie Kent, Xiomara Reyes, Jose Manuel CarreƱo, Herman Cornejo, David Hallberg and many more. 

Audiences will have two opportunities to see Marcelo Gomes as he partners Paloma Herrera (at the Nov 4 & 7 evening performances).  Gomes was featured in a New York Times article this past summer which said  Gomes "is like the ballet world’s Cary Grant: he has all the urbane charisma in the world, but pushes it aside in favor of making his partner look good."
