In the short time they have been with this company, Alan Alberto and Ruth Whitney have proven to be the wonderful additions we were all hoping they would be. They are strong and technical dancers who maintain an impressive level of artistry and passion. In The Sleeping Beauty this weekend, Alan and Ruth will once again partner together. The pair will dance the lead roles of Prince Désiré and Princess Aurora, bringing to a close an incredible debut season with FBP.
In this gallery are scenes from their Act III wedding pas de deux, one of the most famous and challenging of such “Grand pas de deux” in all of classical ballet. (All photos by A. Cemal Ekin)
