Vaganova graduation performances 2009

Did anyone see any of these performances? And is it known which dancers will join the Mariinsky next season, and if any Vaganova graduates are taking up contracts outside Russia? (à la Maria Iakovleva and Oxana Kiyanenko)

Carmela, I've heard only about Yulia Stepanova (Lilac Fairy at the graduation) and Tatyana Tiliguzanova (Giselle pdd). No word yet on my favorite among the graduates, the petite beauty (Obraztsova style) Margarita Frolova. Maybe she went abroad or to the Maly-Mikhailovsky?

This year saw nothing like last year's mass-employment of over 25 graduates. Next year (Class of 2010) is supposed to have more talent, especially among the boys, e.g., Sasha Saveliev.
