News? I've heard very little, except that this year's edition features yet another Nacho Duato work, Na Floresta, as well as Gayane Suite and the usual Divertissements. No 19th-C classical scene, as in most years past? Not to take away from certain fine graduates but the general feeling has been that the Class of 2013 is not at the high level seen during the last couple of years. Still, Fateev needs many new corps de ballet members, so I'm guessing that Zaklinskaya, Ivanova-Skoblikova and a few others may make it into the MT company.
The much-touted Zhiganshina doesn't graduate for another year (or two). They're making us suffer year and year, as they did with Olga Smirnova and Kristina Shapran, who were the belles of the graduation concerts for many years before they actually graduated in 2011.
