Kirov Promotions

1 post in this topic

Just saw, in the Kirov web, that a bundle of (mostly) women have been promoted from corps de ballet to choryphee. These include all of the 'stars' of the last graduation class in June 2006:

Nicely, photos of most are included with their bios (follow the hyperlinks). Some of these faces will be very familiar to audiences at the recent City Center engagement.

The bad news: Yana Selina and Svetlana Ivanova remain with the choryphees after all of these years...

p.s. - We've commented on the higher-level promotions -- the new Principals (Tereshkina, etc.) and First Soloists -- within the Kirov-City Center thread, so I won't repeat here.
