yudi, thank you so much for the beautiful photos and your thoughts on the performances.

Thank you, too, Caesariatus. You probably haven't this post up thread, because Katenka joined Ballet Alert! after I did my morning check for new registrants, and I just made it visible:

Hi Caesariatus,
 
The Queen of the Dryads was danced by Ana Turazashvili (she also danced the second variation in the Grand Pas).

Thanks!  Any word on why Smirnova couldn't do it?

Not that I've heard. Hopefully nothing serious! I was quite disappointed not to see Smirnova, but Turazashvili was lovely.

Does anybody know who danced the Queen of the Dryads in today's performance (Thu. 31 July) at Saratoga?  The program lists Olga Smirnova, but just before the curtain rose there was a PA announcement of a change in that role.  However, I didn't catch the name.

 

I'm a little late seeing this, but for the record I can tell you it was Yulia Grebenshikova, NOT Ana Turazashvili. 

 

For the Thursday matinee and the Friday evening performance Smirnova was replaced as Queen of the Dryads by Grebenshikova. On Thursday the switch was announced before the curtain went up, on Friday it wasn't, but it was the same both times.

 

Of course, someone also had to take Grebenshikova's place in the middle of the Three Dryads, and both times that was Turazashvili. It was a delight for me to see a little more of her, so I noticed particularly. smile.png

Shirabyoshi, thanks so much for the correction. Yes, it was a delight to see both Yulia and Ana! flowers.gif
