MARCELO GOMES, THE FAVORITE, ON YOUTUBE

I have been called a “bad Marcelo fan” for continuously chatting about Roberto Bolle, as I did, for ex., in the last post (I don’t think any current dancer promotes himself quite as much as Roberto, and he promotes ballet with himself, so you can’t help but love him for that reason alone).

Anyway, when I first started blogging there were practically no YouTubes of any of my favorite dancers, but that’s thankfully now changed. So, here are several of Marcelo, still SLSG’s favorite ballerino!, dancing with some of SLSG’s favorite ballerinas.

Here, with Alessandra Ferri in Lar Lubovitch’s gripping Othello pas de deux:

Here with Veronika Part in Swan Lake (video quality is not the best, but oooh, the music!)

Here, his Albrecht variation from Giselle, which is timely since ABT is currently in Ocean County, CA, performing that ballet:

Here, as the wickedly sexy Von Rothbart in Swan Lake:

Here, with Gillian Murphy at the beginning of SL (again as Von Rothbart):

The guy who’s dancing the swamp-creature persona of Von Roth, above, is Isaac Stappas, whose new headshot, coincidentally, I was just sent by the amazing Jade Young, who is practically becoming ABT’s portraitist in residence!

I’ve posted it previously, but here is Marcelo’s which he did a while back:

And one more, with Gillian Murphy again in Coppelia:

I know, the videos are nothing compared the live versions, but the first, of Othello, comes kind of close, no? And the last you can see pretty well, especially around the 4 minute mark when the great one begins his solo.

  1. Tonya, Thanks so much for posting the gorgeous Marcelo clips! I especially enjoyed the Othello as I saw Desmond Richardson dance the title role when I went. Marcelo is so dazzling in whatever he does. I can't wait to see Mr. Gomes perform in The Kings of Dance at City Center that I learned about from your informative Blog. I ran out that very day and purchased my ticket! Thanks again for all that you do for dancers and dance fans!!!

    Aw, thank you Jonathan! It's the people like you who make this worth doing :)

    I can't wait to see Kings of Dance either!

  3. Seriously, he's adorable but quit with all the Roberto when we have Marcelo. I love, love, love him in Othello and for me, there is no one who does Von Rothbart as perfectly snarky as Marcelo Gomes! I ran out and purchased tickets for Kings of Dance the day they went on sale for Los Angeles myself!

    Thanks!
