I did an search and can’t find that this has been posted already.

 

Interview and some nice photos.

 

Last question. What makes you laugh?
Well, people laugh at things I say, but comedy and happy things are not really me. I like sarcasm more than anything. I’m a bit of a grumpy old man.”

In this video from 2001, a young and playful Maria Kochetkova performs the female variation from this pas de deux in Moscow. Even without her partner, Kochetkova exudes a coquettish demeanor. Just as her dainty brisés perfectly suit her petite physique—not to mention her Bournonville ballon—her endearing épaulement takes viewers in from the moment of her first preparation. Even at this early age, it is no surprise that Kochetkova would go on to become a principal dancer with San Francisco Ballet only six years later.

It occurs to me that she may speak in English, and be translated to French on the show. I'm not sure if this production is related, but here is Masha as the Spirit of Van Cleef & Arpels, directed by Mathieu Demy.

I wonder if Masha gets to have her look-alike brooch as a reward. ;)

I found the video functionality to be troublesome - if I moved my mouse pointer after clicking the Play button, the video would immediately freeze. Not a good way to program things. But this may just be an issue with particular browsers.

Good grief!  Where on earth do people wear stuff like that?  Gorgeous, but Holy Mackerel...

 

And...

It was fine on my iMac using Safari, but the same problem you had on Firefox.

 

As to the music, I couldn't understand a word the little old lady with laryngitis 'sang'.  Did it have something to do with the proceedings or was it just meant to be atmosphere?

 

Thanks for posting.  Always interesting to see dancers doing something a little different.
