Just being curious here..perhaps one of the regular posters about the Mariinsky can reply to this. Who exactly are the 'principals', 'first soloists' and 'second soloists' in the company? The English version of the website just lumps them all into the category of 'soloist' :rolleyes:

Thanks! :D

Thanks Marc! Sologub's name isn't on the list anywhere though so I'm guessing the list is still not complete. Also, Ivanova is listed as a Principal on the English version page! Urgh..Ah well...will find out when I get to St. Petersburg one day! :)

As I was roaming around the boards, I noticed that Ekaterina Osmolkina and Tatyana Tkachenko were mentioned among those that were promoted within the ranks of the Kirov. Now, I should back up and explain that about 2 years ago, on a random trek through a Japanese ballet shop, I came across a video-set of variations as taught by teachers at the Vaganova Choreographic Institute. Among those performing the variations (and shown in the painful albeit rewarding learning process) were the students Osmolkina and Tkachenko, with the former dancing Diana (from Diana and Acteon pdd) and Aurora, and the latter doing Kitri and the "big, jumpy" grand allegro variation from Paquita.

They were both great, with Osmolkina being the more refined of the two, and I was ecstatic upon learning that these dancers, obviously having some talent, are starting their rise to the top.

And to think, I saw them before any of this promotion nonsense. :)
