Pas de Trois or Neopolitan...which role would you drop?

Due to my busy schedule [being a senior, high school rodeos, ballet rehearsals, and SAT/ACT testing] I might have to drop some of my 3 roles in Swan Lake. I am a Swan Soloist [can't drop] and I'm in the Pas de Trois and the Neopolitan Soloist. I've communicated with my teacher that I might have time to do all of these roles and I might miss more than 1 rehearsal [there's other aspects of the situation too, but that's the main one] so I might be dropping one or both of those roles if it all boils down to that.

 

Has anyone been in the Pas de Trois or the Neopolitan soloist? Are they fun? Long? Excruciating? Which one would you drop? I just need some info or input or something. Thanks.

Depends a lot on which version of the Neapolitan you're doing. If it's anything but Ashton's version of it, including the Petipa original, I'd lose it.

I completely agree with Mr. Johnson. The Act 1 Pas de Trois is really fun, and the girls' variations are lovely. I have never found the ball scene to be as interesting, except for the Black Swan Pas.

 

That's really amazing that your school is able to put on a full Swan Lake! Even many companies are only able to perform the second act, or excerpts.
