There are qualities in Roberts’ dancing that one might see in Ulyana Lopatkina performances - and she is probably one of the best Swans in the world. Roberts’ arms are exquisite and have a large dollop of Lopatkina’s ‘not of this world’ look. Similarly her movement is crisp and bold and yet very lyrical and her face speaks of deep, deep, melancholy.
