Edward Villella

New York City Ballet luminary Allegra Kent's delightful children's book, Ballerina Swan, was a hit with fans and critics when it came out last year. Now the tale of Sophie, a swan who dreams of becoming a ballerina, is coming to the New York City stage. Making Books Sing's production of Ballerina Swan opens November 9 at Theater 3 on 43rd St—and it features Edward Villella as the voice of Mr. Balletski, the choreographer who gives Sophie a chance.
