Add Your Own Touch and Live That Story

Interview with Michelle Willems on her career at Ballet Zurich 

You danced the main roles in Nutcracker and the Mouseking, the little Match girl and Sleeping beauty. The characters are totally different. Could you tell us about the challenges of each ballet?

Nutcracker was my fist big role at the Ballet Zurich. I was lucky to get this opportunity and didn’t want to disappoint. I enjoyed it very much to play a little girl.

„What is Sleeping Beauty?“ Alexei Ratmansky researched

Reviving clasasical ballets

 

Alexei Ratmansky is one of the most reknowned choregraphers today. He reconstructs and revives old ballets by spending months to study the movement score, step by step. So Sleeping Beauty came out with more subtlety, with more gradation and more in-between things. These are small differences but in the end it makes a changed ballet.
