I've opened a new thread here for links and discussion of other Mariinsky "Raymonda" performance clips. Birdsall, thank you so much for the heads up on the Kolegova clips.

Here's Kondaurova in the pas de deux with Ivanchenko:

An interesting Mariinsky Facebook posting:

 

Our prima ballerina Yekaterina Kondaurova was a real hero of the 2012/13 season. Congratulations!

In the 2012/13 season, the Mariinsky Ballet prima ballerina Yekaterina Kondaurova appeared in all three parts of George Balanchine’s Jewels, dancing principal roles in Emeralds, Rubies and Diamonds, all in one evening, at the 13th International Ballet Festival Mariinsky. Three days later she appeared in the role of second soloist in Rubies, which she used to dance before. The case, when a ballerina appears in all three parts of Jewels, particularly during one evening, is absolutely unique.

In the 2012/13 season, Yekaterina Kondaurova’s workload and ability to work have exceeded all thinkable limits — she was involved in numerous performances in St Petersburg and almost all performances of the Mariinsky Ballet on tour. She debuted in the title role in Raymonda, a number of times appeared as Nikia in La Bayadère, Odette-Odile in Swan Lake (in particular, she replaced other soloists on tour in Taiwan at a very short notice as well as danced this role during the first ever live 3D broadcast of this ballet). Yekaterina Kondaurova danced roles of Titania and Hippolyta in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Phrygia and Aegina in Spartacus, Zarema in The Fountain of Bakhchisarai, Myrtha in Giselle, Medora in Le Corsaire, the Siren in Prodigal Son, Carmen in Carmen Suite, Death in Le Jeune Homme et la Mort. She also appeared in solo roles in Angelin Preljocaj’s Le Parc and William Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated. Yekaterina Kondaurova performed Fokine’s The Dying Swan in the Grand gala dedicated to the opening of the new Mariinsky Theatre (Mariinsky II) and appeared in the premiere performances of Sasha Waltz’s Le Sacre and Alexei Ratmansky’s Concerto DSCH, in addition to dancing in his other ballets Anna Karenina, Cinderella and The Little Humpbacked Horse.

Yes, definitely is Ms. K beginning in the 2nd section of the video (in the PDD - if you can call it that). Thanks for the video link.

thanks indeed -- I've been thinking about Ratmansky the last couple of days, and wishing I could see this again.
