Fabio Lo Giudice joined the Royal New Zealand Ballet in 2014, moving to New Zealand with his wife and fellow RNZB Soloist, Katherine Minor. Most recently seen onstage in the title role of The Nutcracker (2018), Fabio has also performed solo roles with distinction in Jiří Kylián’s Petite Mort (2018), Romeo and Juliet (2017), Don Quixote (2015) and Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante (2014) and Divertimento No. 15 (2018). Fabio’s expressive and dramatic qualities have also inspired choreographers to create roles especially for him, most recently Danielle Rowe in Remember, Mama (2018).
Fabio was born in Catania, Sicily and started dancing at the age of ten. The same year, he joined La Scala Ballet School in Milan, moving to The Royal Ballet School in London one year later. While there, he appeared in performances by the School at the Royal Opera House and also performed on secondment with The Royal Ballet.
Fabio joined the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago in 2010. His repertoire with the Joffrey Ballet included Julie Adam’s Night, The Nutcracker, The Merry Widow, Yuri Possokhov’s Don Quixote, Nijinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps, Balanchine’s Stars and Stripes and James Kudelka’s Pretty Ballet among others.
