Thanks so much, Rosa, for posting the video! Kudos to Merrill Ashley for prepping the company and the result is a beautiful performance. Smirnova is a new ballerina to me and she is lovely.

The Moscow Times' Raymond Stults reviews the Bolshoi premiere of "Jewels." http://www.themoscow...uts/458362.html.
Thank you Marc Haegeman for the beautiful pics Posted Image! http://www.for-balle...ewels-2012.html.
The costumes for Emeralds and Diamonds are lovely. Now that I can compare the review with some visuals, I must say
I'm ITA with Stults' assessment of the new decors for Emeralds and Rubies. The costumes for the Rubies females aren't as successful... Karinska's design for Rubies remains the best. I feel that if it isn't "broke don't fix it" - MO. I apologize
if production values may be considered slightly off topic here.

Thanks for posting; I love Smirnova in pretty much everything I see her in.

Also highly recommended is her Lilac Fairy opposite Obraztsova--they are divine together.

The women's in Rubies look like they're going to go clubbing. In really cheap dresses. The costumes for Diamonds are lovely though (but Karinska is still tops!)

Olga Smirnova is amazingly excellent in her debut La Bayadere in this March. She also proved her great potential in May's Jewels as a major role of the Diamond. I hope to see more of her performances.

I found a youtube recording of the full Bolshoi performance of a certain neo-classical ballet about three precious stones, with Olga in the finale. Send me a p.m. and I'll forward the link (assuming you're a regular poster on the board, and don't seem suspiciously affiliated with a certain trust), or you can run a search yourself. Just trying to avoid the attention / ire of a certain trust.

Another big debut for Olga on the 11th, Anastasia in Ivan the Terrible -- http://www.bolshoi.r...formances/576/. When was the last time the Bolshoi did Ivan?
