  1. "Nureyev" to Premiere in December !

    If only it could have premiered this summer!!! I had to stand and then sit for two back to back Don Quixotes, their 'Nureyev' alternative. Either way, hopefully some better recordings emerge online from the premiere. I suppose the Bolshoi decided to stall its Coppelia revival to make room for this.
  2. Hello!

    Yes! I should be able to see Ekaterina Kondaurova and Oksana Skorik if the casting holds.
  3. Hello!

    Thank you! I'm glad to be a part of this online community.
  4. Houston Ballet: hurricane and flooding?

    I am really hoping that the performances of Mayerling go on as scheduled. I wonder if Houston Ballet will try to find alternate venues - places like Jones Hall did not flood. Either way, best of luck as they are repairing and many thanks to the MET Dance Center.
  5. Hello!

    I have followed these forums for a long time, but I only recently had the urge to make an account. I'm a university student in Texas and I used to be a ballet dancer. Although I only take ballet class once or twice a week, I regularly attend performances at Houston Ballet. Additionally, this summer I attended a Russian language course in St. Petersburg and had the opportunity to see performances at the Mariinsky, Mikhailovsky, and Bolshoi Ballet (we took a weekend trip to Moscow). Although Hurricane Harvey caused a lot of devastation, I am hoping to attend as many Houston Ballet performances as I can. Additionally, in October I will watch two performances of the Mariinsky's tour to Washington D.C.. My favorite dancers are Katherine Precourt, Karina Gonzalez, Connor Walsh, Nikolai Tsiskaridze, Angelina Vorontsova, Viktoria Tereshkina, Oksana Skorik, Ekaterina Kondaurova, and Maria Alexandrova.
