Cannot wait to perform this solo in Act 2 of Onegin tonight again with ABT (@abtofficial)! This is from 5 years ago... how time flies.

Taking some inspiration from @alexhammoudi and @balletmoods I created this little meme to depict how we feel right now using @sarahlaneps103's and yours truly's final jumps in Swan Lake off a cliff onto... the weekend (aka a semi-soft blue mat). Thanks to @jillelainahaley for the video.

So this happened last night! With a culmulative amount of 4 reharsals Sarah Lane (@sarahlaneps103) rose to the occasion and performed her ABT (@abtofficial) debut of the title role Odette/Odile on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera House (@metopera)! Kudos to our Rothbarts Grayson Davis (@graysongray86) and Alban Lendorf (@albanlendorf) for an exciting show as well!

After 4 shows, 12 revoltades/540, 16 double assemblés, a few barrel jumps and a few pirouettes on the Metropolitan Opera stage I'm happy Corsaire week is over. Onto Swan Lake next week! By the way, a shoutout to my cuban brother @osielgouneo who actually showed me the pirouette above... #CreditWhereCreditIsDue
