New principal dancer in Copenhagen

Recommended Posts

The Royal Danish Ballet is currently in the middle of a run of its own preferred Romeo and Juliet - Neumeier's - and  last night's Juliet, Wilma Giglio, was promoted to the company's highest rank onstage during the curtain calls. It's five years since they had a new female principal and it was getting fairly obvious that she would be the next one.


She comes from Argentina and had her early training there, arriving in Dnamark via the Prix de Lausanne and the Canadian Ballet School - she's been a soloist since 2018 and has already danced La Sylphide and Swan Lake.


(And incidentally, checking the press relase on the RDB site, I notice that Nikolaj Hubbe's contract has just been extended for another 4 years.)
