Roberto Bolle: An International Ballet Superstar


By Joe Alexander

I caught up with ballet’s sexiest superstar Roberto Bolle while he was on a boat off Capri in his native Italy. The critically acclaimed dancer, who lives between Milano and NYC, is bringing his show “Roberto Bolle & Friends” to City Center for a one-night gala on September 17th.  Bolle, who started these shows 13 years ago in Europe, said he was inspired by “Pavarotti & Friends” and hopes that he can expand the audience for ballet the way The Three Tenors helped to popularize opera. “It is the first time I’m bringing my gala to NYC and I’m really happy about that,” said Bolle, who has been a Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theatre since 2009 and has held the title of Etoile of La Scala Theatre for a decade.
