La Teatro alla Scala Ballet

Dolce & Gabbana and South Coast Plaza celebrate Teatro alla Scala Ballet Company

 

 

No matter that ballerina Misty Copeland has a busy schedule. The American Ballet Theatre principal said that when the opportunity arose to dance the title role opposite Roberto Bolle at the July 28 opening night performance of “Giselle” at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, her reaction had been, “How could I not?”

Ticking off the reasons, she continued, “It’s Roberto Bolle. It’s La Scala. It’s a dream come true for any ballet dancer.”

At the advance cocktail party, where Copeland and Bolle met arts center donors and other VIPs, Bolle, too, expressed admiration for his partner. “She’s so natural, so genuine,” he said. “She brings real emotion to her roles.”
