marcelo gomes' choreographic breakthrough I august 30, 2016

"At the Ardani gala on August 19 and 20, the American premiere of Tristesse triggered great audience excitement. A ballet for four men and an onstage pianist playing Chopin, it’s gorgeously musical, beautifully crafted and brilliant in its mood shifts. The inventiveness flows naturally rather than, as in some contemporary ballet, punching the audience with aggressive or bizarre behavior. Marcelo’s use of the classical language within a contemporary setting is studded with delightful choreographic surprises."

Marcelo Gomes: The King of Dance | December 2015

Do you feel like the Pele of dance?' That question was met with a long silence by Marcelo Gomes, the 36-year-old Brazilian dancer recognized as one of the best in his country, and the world. He is known both for his enviable ability to dazzle as a soloist, and for being the partner any ballerina wants at her side, a rare combination. His list of accomplishments includes one of the dance world’s most important prizes, the Prix Benois de la Danse."

"Mr. Gomes, who is widely admired by the dance public (and critics) for his combination of technical prowess, fine acting and beautiful form, said that he had been interested in choreography for years. I used to grab Misty Copeland in class and start improvising with her, and we would work in the studio and put little pas de deux together,' he said. 'Now she is in this piece.'"

The Real-Life Diet of a Professional Ballet Dancer | October 6, 2015

"Hearing Marcelo Gomes, principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, talk about preparing for a performance is like listening to a seasoned marathoner prepare for 26 miles. That's before he compares himself to a racehorse. Maintenance is a huge part of our lives,' he says. Just like a horse, really, you have to peak at race time, not before. So you have to see how many weeks you have and work your way to it. It’s not just about pumping up, it’s about getting ready for curtain call.'
