Sleeping Beauty with Polina Semionova
Posted 28 January 2004 - 08:48 AM
I have seen the video "Demo" (wanted to post a link but shame - cannot find it any more) where she dances and have heard she has toured a lot despite of her still very young age - anyone has seen her Aurora before?
Will try to report!

She was wonderful!
She has never ending legs and arms and a wonderful technic. She´s really pretty. It´s fun to watch her dancing.
I noticed that your date is allready over, but I never saw this thread before (I´m new here)

Polina was indeed a very young, very fresh Aurora, and her personality suits this role ideally.
Sometimes in first act she looked a bit unsure of where to go next (between her variations), but this fits so well into the role of a young excited girl it was more an advantage than a disadvantage. She did not behave like a star at all (something I have noticed with other Aurora casts), and her bright smile seemed to come right from her heart - a friend of mine compared this smile to Julia Roberts!
Roman Lazik was a very attentive partner and a charming prince (and, by the way, danced a memorable Armand in his debut of Neumeier's Lady of the Camellias last night)!
