Ekaterina Osmolkina receives Honored Artist title

2 posts in this topic

Alas, this title recently does not result in additional work and better casting for those honored with it, e.g., Dumchenko, Pavlenko. If anything, it's imformally come to symbolize a "booby prize"...a farewell bouquet of sorts. Still - congratulations.

Another Mariinsky Ballet person honored today is coach Vyacheslav Khomiakov, the guy responsible for the staging of Soviet-era treasures like Jacobssen's Spartacus and Shurale, Belsky's Leningrad Symphony, etc. All of the ballets that never tour outside of Russia.
