ABT is performing in Japan until March 2. Here is a nice review by Naomi Mori of Backtrack of the February 20 Nutcracker performance with Veronika Part and Marcelo Gomes. I loved their opening night performance at BAM in December and they picked up in Japan where they left off in Brooklyn according to Naomi:

“…the grandeur cavalier, played by Marcelo Gomes, displays such elegance and partners the glamorous Veronika Part so tenderly that he makes their duet look like a truly classic love story. What follows is a glorious and breathtaking betrothal scene that every Clara would dream of.”
