A review of Richmond Ballet by George Jackson for danceviewtimes.


Igor Antonov's career as a danseur began in the Ukraine, is concluding in Virginia and has included considerable years in Germany. Trained in the Soviet Union's Vaganova curriculum at Kiev, Antonov won fans dancing for companies he joined - Donetsk Ballet, Richmond Ballet, Duesseldorf Ballet and again Richmond - as well as for companies that invited him to guest. His director at Richmond, Stoner Winslett, decided to start her 2011/12 season with a pair* of programs that are retrospectives of Antonov's choice roles. Initially the idea seems to have been to cast him in a different one or two of these parts at each performance during the September 8 to 18 run. However, Antonov demurred and chose instead to say goodbye in the same work on each occasion - George Balanchine's "Who Cares?". It pleases him to see the company's younger men, whom he has helped to rehearse and coach, do the other dancing.
