...hope to have a chance to see Kochetkova some day, either live or in a live-in-cinema situation.

If you can beg or borrow a copy of the SFB DVD of the Nutcracker that came out a few years ago, she dances the GPdD. She is lovely.

"vulnerability, playfulness, rebellion; characteristics repressed daily by the requirements of her trade."


Those characteristics didn't seem terribly repressed when MK danced in Giselle, Emeralds and Rubies.


vulnerability - any of the dying or tragic heroes -Swan Queen, Giselle, R&J, Tatiana, Marguerite...
playfulness - Sylphide, Giselle before madness, Manon ...
rebelliousness - Rubies, R&J, Siegfried ...

[font=Georgia, Times,][size=5]The succeeding Classical Symphony is set to eponymous Prokofiev by the former Bolshoi dancer Yury Possokhov. It is buoyant, playfully snook-cocking, despatched with brightest verve by a cast led by the splendid Hansuke Yamamoto and Maria Kochetkova, and the choreography sits happily, saucily in its music, given with almost tangible delight by its cast.[/size][/font]

There is a sweepingly lyrical pas de deux for Maria Kochetkova and Vitor Luiz, full of complex lifts that accent Ms. Kochetkova’s gorgeously pliant back and beautifully articulate arms.
