You can tell when Maria Kochetkova is thinking hard about something, because her lips purse and her eyes darken. The look crosses her face frequently during a rehearsal with fellow San Francisco Ballet principal Vitor Luiz for the Kingdom of the Shades pas de deux from La Bayadère. The sequence of entrelacés from pirouette to attitude derrière is especially vexing her...
“I constantly have so many ideas in my head, things I want to do, that I just keep working. I realize how little time I have, and how much time I wasted already,” she says, referring to her years in the ENB corps. So she takes on as many opportunities as she can manage. “When you go onstage you are free,” she explains. “No one can tell you what to do. And there are moments when you are so in harmony with the music, with the steps, and you know that people understand. And you feel it. It doesn’t always happen, but when it happens…” She thinks a moment, then adds, “It’s like explaining what love is.”

OK, not sure what to make of this Twitter from M. K.:
"Just confirmed: Dancing Rubies @ Stanislavsky Theater this Tuesday night at Uliana Lopatkina's gala! Very excited to dance home again!"
Rubies? Did she dance this before, back in 2009 maybe? I have to wonder who her partner is...

Masha appears in a Russian TV segment on the recent Yekaterinburg Nutcracker (don't ask me why) performance.
The videos are tv news segments on the 100-year anniversary of Yekaterinburg Ballet and the gala ballet performance they're putting on for the celebration, including Kochetkova and Carbone (and someone from Mariinsky but I didn't catch who). In the first one, she mentions that she is performing in this because she doesn't get a lot of opportunities to perform in Russia and she wants a chance to be in front of a new audience.
She seems to be dancing the pas de deux with Andrei Sorokin, the Ekaterinburg entrant for Big Ballet ( or Bolshoi Ballet - the tv program, not the company - that's a hard distinction to make in English).
