The Vaganova Prix is underway. Here's a preview article from St Petersburg Times. Jury chairman is Natalia Makarova; Altynai Assylmuratova is the deputy. I've been to this competition twice (95 & 98) and it is usually dominated by Vaganova Academy recent-grads. It was won in '98 by Mikhail Ilyn...a huge favorite for a medal in Jackson this year. Other winners in past have included Uliana Lopatkina, Maya Dumchenko, Andrian Fadeev, etc.

Just a note that Polina Semionova (18yo) will be joining Malakhov's Berlin Staatsoper Ballet as a FIRST SOLOIST (principal) from 2002-2003 season -- it has been announced on their website. She must be amazingly talented. Semionova was also a gold medalist at the Moscow IBC 2001 as well as a finalist at Nagoya IBC 2002. Good luck to Semionova!
