There will be others besides these; it looks like rafzak was going to upload 8 segments total and the other user probably more.

What a helpful conductor; it sounded like he was really trying to help in that 2nd act solo.

Holy crap. The Mariinsky has really lowered its standards. Look at Kampa's feet on pointe (when they remain on pointe in poses)...and non-Vag epaulement and port de bras.

The moment that says it all: the sets of grand jetes beginning at about 5:12 into the film -- first, Kitri (Kampa) floundering, then Dryad Queen (Vasnetsova) high and regal from beginning to end. Proof is definitely in the pudding.

To be honest, I kind of feel sorry for her.

Indeed. That she got into this situation is not her fault. Ditto all of the others who've been incorrectly pushed into starring roles by Fateev et al.

I should have mentioned it earlier but the Amour is wonderful, too. :)

Agree with both comments.

And what makes me sadder even than the technical and stylistic deficiencies, obvious even to my inexpert eye, is the complete lack of joy in her dancing, here and in just about every other clip of her I've seen; she usually looks terrified. I keep going back to that delightful Novikova clip in post #102 for a palate freshener.

Loved the wonderful Espada.

Now that the tragedy has passed, let's talk about good things: Olga Smirnova was invited to dance La Bayadere, on 4 February. Congratulations girl!

One also can't help but notice the audience's response to that exact moment in time. They know it as well.
