I got to see Polunin on film a few days ago at an encore broadcast of the Royal Ballet's Sleeping Beauty. His technique was amazing, but his acting was even more striking, it was probably the most convincing performance of Prince Florimund I have yet seen, he looked like he believed in every minute of the story 100%. He may well go on to have a career in acting. But he even when he stops dancing, he should seriously continue to perform character roles in ballet, I think might be a brilliant Drosselmeyer later on.
