British Theatre Guide of the ENBS Summer Performance.
“Excerpts from The Sleeping Beauty are the crowning point of the evening. Featuring students from all year groups, Carlos Valcárcel and his artistic staff present a choreographic adaptation of Petipa’s classic. In the role of Princess Aurora is Remi Nakano, who joins Atlanta Ballet ll, the programme and pathway to joining Atlanta Ballet as a full company member. Highly musical, Nakano’s ripened and serene technique is more akin to an accomplished soloist than a fresh graduate. Partnered by Yuki Nonaka as the Prince, who joins Sarasota Ballet, together they deliver a valiant alliance in the grand pas de deux.”
