Birmingham Royal Ballet Soloist Alexander Campbell's first rehearsal as the Kangaroo Rat in David Bintley's 'Still Life' at the Penguin Café. Also featured is Soloist Joseph Caley rehearsing the same role.
My male protagonist is cast in the Russian Trepak of The Nutcracker. In 2005, I saw the Boston Ballet Nutcracker and the Trepak was out of control phenomenal. That was the main inspiration for this plot point.
