At last! :clapping: :flowers: Hopefully this may open the door for her to lead "Swan Lake" with her home company.

Huzzah! She is simply a joy to watch! It's too bad she's not on the roster for Giselle at Kennedy Center next month (me being selfish).

She will be at a Malakhov & Friends gala in Berlin at the time of the KennCen Giselle.

Hoorah for Obraztsova - finally Odette-Odile! It's about time. Expect classical purity instead of stork-like extensions.

Obraztsova is the cover girl for Dance Magazine's February issue. Her O/O debut has been bumped up to March. There's a very nice feature article
by Margaret Willis.

Thank you for posting, cantdance. I get chills watching this, it is too good to be true! So lovely, in a very different way from the more majestic Kondaurova. Obraztsova is more in the petite-but-long-limbed mold of Makarova.

I thought that as well, but when she tilts her head sideways, I think of a young Audrey Hepburn (who was also trained in dance)

Beautiful, just saw the rehearsal clip online, I am so excited. I hope clips of her performance make their way to the internet for those of us who won't ever be lucky enough to see someone like Obraztsova perform for real!!

I also thought of Kirkland watching this clip, not overwhelmingly--but a bit...Hope to see Obraztsova live one day (though I think it unlikely I will).

She's lovely. I agree with both the Kirkland and the Hepburn comparisons.

OFF TOPIC: In the shots in the rehearsal studio, are those the black dress forms for Kylian's Petite Morte? Or are the from the Stanislavsky's Swan Lake Act III?

Yes, I noticed that when I tried to book. :crying:

Maybe a hotel concierge can find alternatives? :dunno:

Having read and on this very board ( here ) about moscovites throwing brooms and what not at performing artists on stage, let us hope that whatever they throw (if they do indeed) safely flies over and way above Evgenia's pretty head.

She is lovely in the video!

PS. It appears to me that Obraztsova finishes her arabesques sideways rather than straight back, perhaps because it is more difficult to do them en tournant.
