Yes, it was Skorik.
Is Skorik the dancer who was the subject of the crazed youtube video from russianballetvideo a month or so ago? The girl with the major technical issues? I can't find the video now, but if so, she really should not be dancing major tours with the problems she seems to regularly have.

Despite all the negative comments about dancers/casting decisions on the other Mariinsky thread, I went ahead and bought a ticket before casts were announced for Berkeley because I can only go to the Saturday matinee, and I wanted a good seat. Been holding my breath ever since to see who I’d end up with and I’ve got…Kondaurova! Hooooray!!! (Please don't rain on my parade by pointing out that casts frequently change....)
We both lucked out then! Crossing every available body part that the casting holds for both of us.

Great for mothers- to-be!!!!
yikes about SKORIK openning and being on Sat. night - Horrible.
the only bonus, is it may still change, and there'll be MARIINSKY ORCHESTRA - I am so much looking forward to that one (recalling a horrible slaughter of Tchaikovsky's score in Toronto by some semi-professionals acompanying Bolshoi's swan lake).

Of course, the more perfect solution would have been to allow Lopatkina to join the tour. It's still incredible that she was left out. Vishneva I can understand as she is a 'globe-trotting free spirit' but Lopatkina???
Interesting also that Skorik is now 'promoted' to having Schklyarov as her Siegfried for TWO of her now-three performances, rather than her usual Siegfried, Timur Askerov. (She still has one perf with Askerov.) At least the reviews are guaranteed to be favorable for one of the two leading roles on opening night.
p.s. Funny thing - The Kennedy Center still shows Somova as their 3rd-cast Cinderella. I guess they haven't gotten 'the memo' yet.

Have to buy another set of tickets...thank god I waited. If I don't manage to see Big Red I will be very irritated. Disappointed about Tereshkina, but obviously congrats to the mothers-to-be.

Two Mikhailovsky 'primas' - Borchenko and Perren -- are happily 'with child,' as reported on numerous other fora and maybe even BA (other thread?).
