Sarasota Ballet Brings Ashton—And Marcelo Gomes—To the Joyce

Sarasota Ballet is returning to New York City’s Joyce Theater with a batch of rarely-seen Ashton works. But the big news is that guest artist Marcelo Gomes will be performing with the company. Yes, Gomes is back performing in New York, possibly for the first time since he resigned from American Ballet Theatre in December […]

Marcelo Gomes Just Resigned from ABT

American Ballet Theatre just announced that principal dancer Marcelo Gomes, who celebrated 20 years with the company this summer, has resigned. Last Saturday, ABT learned of a “highly concerning” allegation of sexual misconduct by Gomes, related to an incident from approximately eight years ago. A press release from board chairman Andrew F. Barth says that […]

Marcelo Gomes’ Choreographic Breakthrough

It’s well known that Marcelo Gomes fires up a stage no matter what role he’s dancing. Whether this American Ballet Theatre principal is Prince Siegfried, the evil Carabosse or a bold force in contemporary works, we cannot get enough of him.

Marcelo Maravilhoso

Powerful, with expansive line, and unparalleled theatrical sensibility, Marcelo Gomes is the dancer that everyone wants to dance with, because he supports his partners like no other—and pushes their dancing to new heights. (I could list all of American Ballet Theatre’s principal dancers and many of the soloists here, but I won’t.) If Marcelo is […]

Vishneva & Gomes Sublime in Giselle

Never have I been so in love with the ballet Giselle. Last night Diana Vishneva and Marcelo Gomes were astounding and moving, lifting each other into the stratosphere. I don’t want to compare them with Alina Cojocaru and David Hallberg last weekend (see my previous blog), but seeing both pairs within a few days is […]

Marcelo, Are you OK?

I’ve never seen an Albrecht who is so convincing that you actually worry about him depleting himself. When ABT’s Marcelo Gomes and Paloma Herrera danced their Giselle last Wednesday, they seemed to draw inspiration from each other. She was sweet, natural, and vulnerable to him. He gathered dramatic steam, and by Act II, he was […]
