Somova thrusts herself upon us -- she reminds me of Lydia in Pride and Prejudice.

What a wonderful comparison, Paul. I can visualize your point immediately. Not having seen Somova on stage, I found myself applying "Lydia Bennet type" to a couple of other ballerinas I've seen over the years. :flowers:

I was trying to find a description of Somova, and "Lydia Bennet" is perfect! Thank you Paul!
