Yes, Roma, Natalia Sologub dances Giselle. I didn't realise that till I checked her biography just now on the Kirov's website.

A bit disappointing news, Jeannie. I can't really imagine Sologub as Cinderella. Her Aurora was less charming than others and her dancing was quite rigid. As Roma said, she was pretty good in a more contemporary choreography. She suits pretty well with the role of kittenish Marsha in the Nutcracker 2001 version. However, Sologub was surprisingly impressive in Chopiniana, so I guess she could make good Giselle as well.

Sologub is probably in one of the casts of this new Cinderella. The cast dancing the premiere on 5 March will be Diana Vishneva and Andrian Fadeyev, from what I've heard.

GREAT news, as I'll be attending the premiere on the 5th (as well as Raymonda on the 2nd), prior to the festival. No complaints if it is a "Vishneva Viechir"! Wow-weeeee...you just made my day, Kevin. smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif
