The Cranko estate makes the Balanchine Trust look downright lenient.
That's putting it mildly ! Congratulations to all the cast members - especially Olga Smirnova and Evgenia Obraztsova! Personally, given all the drama this year, I thought that these two might not be apart of the inaugural slate of performances; so this is a very pleasant surprise to me. Zakharova will get two performances of Tatiana, as will Obraztsova and Smirnova.
