This was just announced in the Mariinsky forum...but now that she's a permanent Principal with the Bolshoi Ballet, let's properly place Obraztsova in the forum of her new company.

Congratulations, Principal! It's about time. :)

http://www.bolshoi.r...ons/ballet/899/

Hopefully, her website will be back up-and-running soon, too...with a new homepage to show-off her new company.

So it's a debut in ANYUTA tomorrow (Feb 2) and the Kobborg SYLPHIDE on the 8th.

The Sky's the limit. Hopefully we will be seeing her here in the USA this summer, either as Swanilda in DC or one of the other ballets in California.

Excellent! Hopefully she will dance Swan Lake with the Bolshoi this summer on their trip to LA. An opportunity I would not have received when the Mariinsky comes with their Swan Lake a few months later!

If Mariinsky management isn't kicking themselves over this, they should be...

I found this as well http://www.bolshoi.r...cles/2012/2095/ which maybe is the formal announcement but google translate isn't helping me much here...

So happy for Evgenia Posted Image Posted Image

Right, Helene. But there's one major difference: Ulanova, like Semenova earlier, was already an established Principal in Leningrad before she moved to Moscow. Obraztsova was denied Principal status in her home troupe years after ballet experts and fans around the world thought that she had earned it [size=2]especially when compared to 'others' pushed ahead of her to Principal status...ahum[/size]. Thank goodness, the nightmare is over.

I wish the same good luck to Ekaterina Kondaurova, i.e., "Get the Heck Out of Dodge!"

Thanks and WOW! That was fast and fantastic...."fast" as in one hour ago: 11 pm Moscow time - 2pm EST?! (Even if it was a matinee, the timing of this is impressive.) I see a lot of Maximova in Obraztsova, just looking at her in that costume, the face, the 'soul' that shines through, etc.

I'm so happy I could run down the streets singing with joy. The Mariinsky lost an amazing ballerina. Congratulations to the Bolshoi for acquiring such a lovely dancer and to Evgenia for her long overdue promotion. Posted Image
