it's a cosmetics ad, but lovely ballerina Misa Kuranaga from Boston Ballet, so worth watching: http://youtu.be/R6HDugp9msQ

David Dawson's Tristan and Isolde. My Tours en l'air ballet trip to Vienna and Prague in April is taking a sidetrip to Dresden so that we can see Dawson's Giselle. He is a hot name in the ballet world who should be better known in North America. This is a trailer for the Tristan and Isolde he is currently creating for Dresden SemperOper Ballett
