The Steadfast Tin Soldier

How fitting that Alessandra Ferri has chosen San Lorenzo, the night of the shooting stars, to bid adieu to the world of ballet. The 44 year old dancer has danced for the last time last night in Taormina's Teatro Antico: her performance has been saluted by 30 minutes of applause, a neverending standing ovation by the 3,000 ballet-lovers in the audience.

Alessandra Ferri- prima ballerina assoluta, who danced first for The Royal Ballet, then for American Ballet Theatre, and finally for La Scala Theatre Ballet, in one of my favorite photographs of dance and movement ever… is this not the epitome of divine?
