Bolle, ballet god

Italian ballet dancer Roberto Bolle photographed by Vanity Fair contributing photographer Bruce Weber for his new book, Roberto Bolle: An Athlete in Tights. From the VF page:

Born in Casale Monferrato, Bolle began training in 1994 at Milan's Theatre La Scala Ballet School, where he was chosen by Rudolf Nureyev to dance the part of Tadzio in “Death in Venice.” Since 2007, Bolle has danced with American Ballet Theatre, where his repertoire includes Albrecht in “Giselle,” Des Grieux in “Manon,” Romeo in “Romeo and Juliet,” Prince Siegfried in “Swan Lake” and Aminta in “Sylvia.”

I have his Swan Lake and The Nutcracker on DVD. Must watch them. Tonight.
