The awards ceremony will take place on 15 April in Moscow. Among the dancers nominated this year are - Kirov dancers Natalia Sologub and Andrian Fadeyev for their roles in last year's production of Nutcracker choreographed by Kirill Simonov, Svetlana Zakharova for her performance in Neumeier's "Now and Then". (Andrian Fadeyev, incidentally, has also been nominated for the Benois prize in Moscow at the end of April.)

All the three ballets staged by Neumeier for the Kirov - "Spring and Fall", "Now and Then", and "Sounds of an Empty Score" - shown in Moscow this week and also in the Maryinsky Festival last month were nominated. Simonov's Nutcracker was also a nominee.

Yes, NO7, I am also pleased to learn that Natalia Sologub and Daria Pavlenko won the awards. The Kirov has really done well this year.

I just found a report in the Moscow Times.

There's also a report in St. Petersburg Times today on the Golden Mask awards - "A golden evening for Petersburg".

In the Benois prize Gala to be held at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow this Friday, Kirov soloists Andrian Fadeyev (a nominee) and Natalia Sologub (the winner of the Golden Mask award for best female dancer last week) will dance the pas de deux from John Neumeier's ballet "Spring and Fall". However Svetlana Zakharova, another nominee, won't apparently be present.

Most of the other nominees will also perform in the Gala.
