Obraztsova's Giselle; Lopatkina's Carmennew roles for Kirov ballerinas
Posted 20 June 2007 - 10:56 AM
Yevgenia Obraztsova made a triumphant debut in the title role of Giselle two nights ago. The ultra-picky Russian fans have been describing her portrayal as 'miraculous,' 'magnificently acted,' 'very traditional - not innovative - in a positive manner' in reports on the Mariinka and other fora. Obraztsova's Albrecht was one of her favorite partners, Leonid Sarafanov.
Prima Ballerina Uliana Lopatkina debuted the role of Carmen in the Alonso/Schedrin Carmen Suite a few days ago at the Bolshoi, where she appeared as a guest. She, too, has been showered with praise. The photos in today's Kommersant newspaper tell it all:
I'll post links to Obraztsova's Giselle reviews/photos, once these become available.
