ROBERTO BOLLE AND VERONIKA PART AT THE MET STAGE DOOR FOLLOWING SWAN LAKE

Review of the performance coming soon, but in the meantime, here are some photos I took at the Opera House stage door last night. First time I’ve ever been there and I mainly wanted to go to see the hysteria I’ve been told happens there whenever Roberto Bolle performs :)

Here with Ariel.

Love these girls’ expressions :) So many really beautiful people — mainly Italians — there!

Was told to take a picture of his jeans label. Can’t completely see it though — it’s the brand he models for, right? I love his turned-out feet :)

He was mobbed by both men and women. He seemed a bit shy but maybe he just didn’t speak English that well. I was told he was shy though, interestingly.

And a couple of Veronika Part. She was really sweet, and very outgoing!

These people were so cute. I think they come every single night, whether they actually attend the performance or not. They set up a veritable candy stand atop a garbage can at the end of the hall so dancers can have a candy on the way out. “Gemma, Simone (fill in dancer name), will you be enticed tonight?”  they call out all night. Simone Messmer has the most athletic female body I’ve ever seen, by the way.

Conductor Ormsby Wilkins showing off his conducting skills to some fans. Just kidding – -he’s just a very demonstrative talker :)

That was fun! Made for a loooong evening though. We didn’t get out of there till well after midnight.

Oh and a young ballet dancer and her mother approached me and told me they read my blog! They know Irina Dvorovenko and Max Beloserkovsky, so Ariel and I were treated to some cute stories about the couple and their little girl, Emma! They also went to the Rizzoli book signing that Roberto gave last week. Said they knew about it from my blog :D I wasn’t able to go since I was giving my own reading, but they filled me in. Said there were lots of people there, expectedly — but lots of older people, not a lot of young women, weirdly. We surmised not enough people knew about it. They showed me some pictures of him – - he was very dapper, dressed in a black suit! He said he liked to dress up.

Fun evening! Review coming soon.

    Yay! Thanks for posting the pictures! I'm so glad you could come with me to the Stage Door!

    Thanks again for going Ariel — for even showing me where the stage door was because I couldn't have found that place without you! That was too much fun :)

  3. Lesley says:

    OMG! You're so lucky ladies to have met Roberto – quite the looker he is!

    I would have fainted if I also had my arm around him! The fact that he is shy makes me more attracted to him.

    Thanks for sharing the photos!

    Same with me, Lesley — about him being shy :)

  5. ACW says:

    Yay! Backstage pictures! Thank you!!

    He's very handsome –and I am in total agreement with you all about the shy-thing! ;)

    And let me just say: Veronika is just so incredibly beautiful – no makeup, wet hair, and probably exhausted – and still just *so* pretty.
