Saye & Meiss replace Ebe & Rodriguez in NBOC Romeo

Brendan Saye and Chelsy Meiss will be performing Alexei Ratmansky's Romeo and Juliet on Sunday March 17, replacing Naoya Ebe and Sonia Rodriguez. Naoya sprained his ankle in the first act of the ballet in Friday night's performance, but incredibly managed to dance the balcony pas de deux in spite of his injury. In the intermission, Guillaume Cote was called in. This created more drama in wardrobe, as usually Naoya and Guillaume share costumes, but as they are not the same size, that costumes have to be altered between each performance. Obviously there is no time to do so in a 20-minute intermission. A hasty substitution of Aleksandar Antonijevic's costumes was made. Bravo to Guillaume for leaping in at such short notice. It's getting to be a habit with him, as he stepped in (out of the audience) as a partner for Tina Pereira when Keiichi Hirano tore his Achilles tendon in the middle of the Le Corsaire pas de deux in the Erik Bruhn competition a couple of years ago, and during the same season stepped in to replace a back-spasm-afflicted Jason Reilly in Taming of the Shrew.
All the best to Naoya for a speedy recovery, so that hopefully he can perform the role in London next month, and to Brendan and Chelsy.
