By the way, in St. Petersburg last week the Kirov soloist Irina Golub made two debuts - in the new Nutcracker partnered by Ilya Kuznetsov, as well as in "Rubies" with Anton Korsakov.

According to local newspaper, the ovation was lukewarm (only a few managed to shout encore/bravo) and soon fading away. I believe this is a rare phenomenon for the Kirov. One of the critics blamed on the poor visibility of the stage that deprived the audience of full appreciation and enjoyments, despite high ticket prices. However, the very first night of Giselle, led by Svetlana Zakharova and Igor Kolb, was performed in full house, and the critics were impressed by the grace and virtuosity of the dancers so much that they felt as if they entered into the territory of the dream. Good one! ;)

The first night of Le Corsaire, performed by Tatiana Amosova, Evgeny Ivanchenko, and Irina Zhelonkina,also received positive reviews, by the way.

Back home in St. Petersburg, the Kirov will premiere a Shostakovich evening on 30 May including the Leningrad Symphony, and the Young Lady and the Hooligan.
