But to watch Marcelo Gomes as the soldier inDnieper, and in every role he dances, is to appreciate anew this imperative. It doesn’t seem possible, but Gomes continues to develop as an artist with each performance.

His partnering is unparalleled, giving his co-stars the “Gomes bump,” an automatic boost of excellence. Guaranteed.
