Semionova leaving staatsballett-berlin

There is a lot of speculation about where is Semionova going, back to Russia ? L'Scala ? or ABT ?
It would be great if ABT can land Semionova full-time, and not only as a guest.

Polina Seminova, First Soloist of the Berlin Staatsballet, asked to be released early from her contract, which had been extended through the summer of 2013, at the end of this season. With sadness/regret, Intendant Vladimir Malakhov agreed (to let her go,) and the company will respect her decision.
Malakhov discovered her at the Bolshoi School, recognizing that she was a major talent. He hired her into the company directly as First Soloist when she was 17. Since her first season [with the company] in 2002-3, Malakhov drove her artistic development and entrusted her with major roles in the repertoire -- for example, Odette/Odile and Tatiana ["Onegin"] -- and brought her to the attention of guest choreographers. These worldwide connections opened the door for her international career, which she developed from an early stage.

This is a tough one for Malakhov, and looks like it may have been unexpected.
