Here's a look at Evgenia Obraztsova performing Juliet this weekend in London for the Mariinsky. Winner of the Moscow Gold, she's being called the next Ulanova (check out the penultimate photo). Talk about an impossible burden.... In these pictures from ballet.co's site there's not a 180 degree, or is it called a 6 O'clock?, in sight. Anyone seen her?

And here she is playing Amour to Paloma Herrera's(!!!) Kitri:

She looks enchanting! Any relation to the great mezzo Yelena O?

I see Igor Kolb is back to his former haircolor, which is a very good thing. He was a blonde Lensky in Santa Fe last summer. Exceptional dancing but bad hair.

She played in a recent (French) movie by Cédric Kahn, called "Les poupées russes"
(IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0409184/). I haven't seen it, but it was quite successful recently at the French box office.

Thanks for the tip, Estelle! Here is a clip (bande annonce) that gives a peek at Swan Lake:

She was the lead girl last night in Forsythe's Approximate Sonata. I really warmed to her - she has excellent presence to top off gorgeous technique. A lot of the dancers didn't seem to know how to 'perform' the Forsythe, seeming not knowing where to look or when to be independent and when to engage with other dancers/the audience. I thought she had it just right, and I couldn't stop watching her.

She can do the 6 o'clock for sure, but she didn't seem to be throwing her limbs around last night either. It was all controlled and placed.... I unfortunately could not see her Juliet however! :)

I saw her Juliet on Saturday and her Forsythe yesterday. All I can say is that she is gorgeous, definitely one to watch in the years to come.

She's extremely beautiful in the photo accompanying this rave review of her La Sylphide. Can this be the next great Romantic ballerina?

She could well be. She has very 'soft' lines.

Although I am grateful for the chance to see more pictures of Obraztsova, especially ones of this quality, it is a shame that they must all be defaced with printing. One can understand the legalities, I suppose, but other sources of dance photos don't do this.

Yeah, I agree, it's a cruel world (big sigh). But, hey, this is only a showing room and if you are really that keen on them, you are always welcome to contact the photographer :)

It's unfortunate that copyright/ownership information has to be placed on the photos but it's done because the photographer/owner of the photos doesn't want the photos to be stolen or used on other websites with his permission or some sort of payment.

Wow. Amazing photos. I think "rapturous" is the word for her performance there and I would kill to see the real thing.

These are lovely additions to your gallery, Marc! Thank you for taking such stunning photos. What would we do without you? Your own sense of aesthetics is wonderfully complemented by the beauty you photograph.
