My name is Marianna, I live in Almaty (former Alma-Ata), Republic of Kazakhstan (Central Asian republic of the former Soviet Union).
I am a very new member of this MOST DELIGHTFUL SITE. Just wanted to express my admiration about the site of the Estonian National Opera. FANTASTIC JOB HAS BEEN DONE!!
I myself have been a ballet admirer since 1999 - when I first time saw the Nutcracker performed by the Almaty State Ballet. Since then I got bold enough to introduce myself to one of the soloist-ballerinas of our ballet and ask to take private dance lessons from her - at the age of 27, no previous experience of ballet lessons )
Later I had an honor to meet through my new friend more ballerinas and dancers of the Almaty Ballet - the most interesting, bright and delightful people I've ever met! Their beuatiful inner qualities are finely matched with their grace and elegance. I can't stop being amazed and delighted with those people who "don't belong to this Earth".
For those, who might be intrested in a bit more about ballet of Almaty. Some of the prima ballerinas and premier dancers were trained in Moscow and St.Petersburg (back in Soviet times) - the "Old Guardia". My dance teacher for example, shared a room with the famous Janna Ayupova, prima ballerina of Mariinsky Theater - when they both were students of Vaganova's Dance Academy. Their friendship is still strong, and when Almaty Ballet went on tour to St.Petersburg, two girl-friends re-united in the summer of 2002
Unfortunately, the problem of losing many of our young talented dancers to bigger ballet companies in Russia, Europe and United States is a very big thing - and big heartache for me - as a fan and admirer of our Ballet, which is losing some of it's core with each talented young dancer leaving us for "better life there".
If someone could tell me how I could attach photos of the ballerinas, that I would love to attach to the message ("copy" and "paste" didn't work), I would be happy.
Cheers to all, and I'll be happy to hear from anyone who would like to write me.
