Marie-Agnes Gillot, Etoile of the Paris Opera Ballet, says that after studying the movement of real swans’ wings, she modified her arm gestures in Swan Lake. That's according to this article about the new ballet by Luc Petton that features actual swans. No swans–real or otherwise–for the company’s Lincoln Center Festival engagement in July, but we’ll see Marie-Agnes Gillot as the lead in Maurice Bejart’s Bolero and as Eurydice in Pina Bausch’s Orpheus and Eurydice.
