This is quite obviously overdue by several years.
Also, I wonder---does the Mariinsky have a press department? In most other companies, a promotion to principal is big news which merits a press release. Some companies even have a little on-stage ceremony when this happens. At the Mariinsky, the webmaster quietly moves the name from one category to another. Strange.

YAY!!! So happy for Katya!!!!

(Though I'll admit that part of me was hoping that she'd come to ABT if the Mariinsky failed to promote her.... Posted Image )
