Now, Spanish star Sergio Torrado (31) says he can't wait to gauge Irish fans' reaction to his participation in a production of 'Sleeping Beauty'.
The Cork City Ballet production opened last night and goes on tour this weekend.
"I'm delighted to be here in Ireland. I have been to Ireland before and have visited Dublin, but this will be my first time in Cork and Wexford," the dancer told the Irish Independent.
'Sleeping Beauty' runs at Cork Opera House until Saturday, and then begins a tour starting in Wexford on November 25.
