2010-2011 Season Roster ChangesPromotions...and one very odd demotion?
Posted 09 November 2010 - 08:44 AM
A more positive note, also catching my eye, is the addition of about 8 Vaganova Academy Class of 2010 graduates to the male corps roster, including Alexei Popov! (Only three ladies made the cut - Assylmuratova's protegee Viktoria Brilyova + Alisa Sodolyova and Oksana Marchuk.)
Last year's graduate, character-dance phenom Vasily Tkachenko, didn't have to wait long to be promoted to Choryphee. In turn, choryphees Alexei Timofeev and Andrei Yermakov were promoted to 2nd Soloists. They seem to be holding back on promoting the ladies but, if number of performances so far this season is any indication, Daria Vasnetsova should soon be a 2nd soloist.

Another one - Character Principal Anna Sysoeva, who just graduated from the Vaganova Academy 5-6 years ago, is also off the roster. She was the bride in Les Noces in the recent telecast-film. Also gone is corps dancer Nadezhda Demakova.

I just checked the roster and Oksana Skorik (from A Beautiful Tragedy) has been promoted to coryphee. As someone who watched the movie and cringed at the harsh treatment she got from the teachers at Perm, I'd say congratulations Oksana!

But overall Mariinsky roster looks weird - very long list of female coryphees (which could be longer since there are dancers like Stepanova, Batoeva, Frolova, Nikitina, Chereshkievich still in corps de ballet) and much shorter of second soloists; only five male first soloists and long list of male second soloists among which are many candidates to first soloists... It seems that promotions are in the air, but when? I hope they won't wait untill next season. I have my favourites and I hope for their promotion impatiently but I'm afraid that Yuri Fateyev's decision will bring more disappoitments than joy.

I just saw her dancing at Carreno's Gala, and I wish I wouldn't have been the witness of such unfortunate night for her. Never seen a ballerina completely lose her spot the way she did during fouettes-(Black Swan)- and then decide to just stop them altogether at around 15. I guess it was the right thing to do, since she was completely out of control and ready to fall at any moment...Her partner in the PDD, Igor Kolb, didn't make things any better for her either, BTW...
Still, it was very sad to see it happen...

It is well deserved. Many congratulations, Mr. Shklyarov!
