New Kirov Roster - Where are Gumerova, Sologob, Iosifidi?

6 posts in this topic

I notice that the Kirov-Mariinsky's website has been updated to included the most recently-hired soloists (the Ukraineans Nadezhda Gonchar & Leonid Sarafanov) but some favorites have been deleted???

We already know about Veronika Part's departure, to the ranks of ABT, last fall. However, I was shocked to not see the names of Sofia Gumerova, Alexandra Iosifidi and Natalia Sologub on the soloist (or principals) roster. I know that Gumerova danced last week's 'Swan Lake' so she could not have resigned THAT quickly!

Perhaps it is just a mistake of the webmaster?

On a similar note: Matvienko seems to be back on the roster??? I thought that he had left a few months ago. Maybe I am hallucinating because of the freezing temperatures here. Back to my hot chocolate & goose-down comforter. :)

No trace of Osmolkina either. I wouldn't take that list too literal, Jeannie, it's full of oddities. Besides, nothing to worry, in the English version all our favourites are still there, even Part :)

Thanks, Marc & Glebb! I did not even look in the English; then again, that one is usually a few steps behind the Russian.

Marc, if you think Ekaterina Osmolkina, she is listed as "coryphée" on the Russian language portion of the site

That's right. Thank you, Saveta!

Apparently the coryphées can only be accessed through the first page of the roster, if you use the "dalee" ("further") link, you jump over them.
