Antonijevic is constantly on the road with the National Ballet, which performs different shows all over the world. So he is usually rehearsing about half a dozen dances at once. Its more exhausting than performing, he says.
The Firebird and The Four Seasons are two of the National Ballets most popular works. The latter is a signature piece, but Antonijevic has a fondness for the mythic Firebird. Story ballets are the reason I still dance, he says. To get lost in a role and to be somebody else is so much more rewarding.
