ABT in Moscow

It looks like the whole company isn't going. I think the best cast for Theme is Lane/Cornejo
The new Millepied work "Troika" seems to be for 3 men and has some interesting casting.
Fancy Free & Seven Sonata have pretty much the same casting as usual.
Can't wait to hear how the Russian audiences respong.

We too rarely see any clips of ABT's dancers. I swear the company acts as if streaming video doesn't even exist.
You're so right!

Hopefully more will come!
This one has a bit more of Fancy Free

How have the reviews been for Troika? Anyone out there who can give us a translation of some of the reviews?

I probably should not be surprised by Boylston's authority and radiance, but I am. This is not the performance of a corps dancer.
No, it sure doesn't look like a corps dancer. She's really stunning in this. She was a standout for me in EDHAO when I saw ABT at NJPAC last November but she is really even more impressive here.

Elga1525 does mentioned that this was filmed on 3-30-2011 in Moscow.It would be wonderful if the complete performance be shown.
Yes, thank you! Since the poster has posted only Russian videos, it seems safe to assume this was the Moscow performance. I probably should not be surprised by Boylston's authority and radiance, but I am. This is not the performance of a corps dancer.

I rewatched the clip and saw what you might interpret as smiling. Isabella dances with a slightly open mouth, teeth closed - in fact it's a way to breathe through your teeth while exerting effort - and you may have thought she was smiling when she was just showing us her usual face. There were 2 brief incidences of a real smile. The first came just before a développé à la seconde as she was opening her arms en face; the second instance was during a supported pirouette as both she and David looked at each other, and David smiled, too.
I repeat my ongoing plea: why hasn't Kevin promoted her yet???!!! She's been dancing solo and principal parts for so long and is as good or better a technician and overall dancer than others who have, through the years. been made soloists far sooner in their trajectories.
