Ricardo Castellanos

After Ricardo Castellanos' debut in the leading role of Solor in La Bayadère, ClassicalMusic.com wrote the following: “He achieves a weightless height in his leaps, almost seeming to hang in the air, his pirouettes are dead-on and last impossibly long. He conveys the dramatic story with technique and feeling and it is harder to imagine a stronger debut than this.”

Castellanos danced the same role in the scene The Kingdom of the Shades in the spring of 2019 and the next season, he also debuted in the role of Rothbart in Holmes’ Swan Lake and the Nutcracker Prince in Boyadjiev’s The Nutcracker and was a soloist in the 1st movement in Balanchine’s Symphony in C. In the autumn of 2020, he debuted as Prince Albrecht in the second act of Giselle and as Romeo in the balcony pas de deux from Romeo and Juliet. In the past, he has danced various roles in MacMillan’s Manon and The Nutcracker and with the Norwegian National Ballet 2, he has danced, among others, the leading role in Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante.

Spanish-Cuban Castellanos (born in 1997) began dancing at the age of nine with La Companya Juvenil de Ballet Clàssic de Catalunya in Barcelona before continuing his studies with his father, Rodolfo Castellanos. He studied at the Royal Ballet School in London and performed in such ballets as Don Quixote, Sleeping Beauty, Giselle and Le Corsaire before joining the Norwegian National Ballet 2 in the autumn of 2016. In 2017, he went on to the main company.
