Which company is that, do you know by any chance? There is no such company as "THE State Ballet of Russia", usually there is a city name that comes with it, e.g. Voronezh State Ballet Theater, Ekaterinburg State Ballet Theater, Novosibirsk State Ballet Theater, etc. The companies conveniently drop the cities names when they tour and it looks like they are THE(!) State Ballet Theater :)

I saw this company's Giselle in 2009, during one of its tours, and was impressed by the quality of the dancing, especially the partnering in Act II pas de deux. They were so much better than I expected ... or than we here in the sticks generally find with unfamiliar Russian touring groups. I just checked my original Ballet Alert post and find that the Giselle was Tatiana Frolova, but she is not listed in the promotional material below.

Good luck with this, Cristian.
