Irma Nioradze, Kirov Ballerina

1 post in this topic

Congratulations to Irma Nioradze, who celebrated 15 years since winning the '91 Jackson IBC and, shortly thereafter, joining the Mariinsky Theater as principal. As impressions and reviews trickle in, I'll translate & post them here (or maybe we'll even get a first-hand report or two). In the meantime, this was the programme, as posted in the Mariinsky website www.mariinsky.ru . It includes what appears to be an 'alternate fourth movement' of Jewels - 'Sapphires'!:
