Yulia Stepanova

Recommended Posts

How about her husband, Kamil? Did he join the Bolshoi as well? At this point, a good percentage of Bolshoi dancers are Vaganova trained and fleeing the Mariinsky:(

So glad she joined the Bolshoi. They recognize talent. Like Zakharova, Obraztsova, and countless others, the Mariinsky will regret letting her go. The Vaganova trains such great dancers. But the Bolshoi usually gets them while the Mariinsky loves dancers like Somova and Skorik...

I kind of wish Novikova would leave for the Bolshoi but I guess she's happy at the Mariinsky.

Interesting news about Alizade --she always caught my eye. I hope she does well in her new company.

Here is the link to the Russian side of the site, that lists Yulia's bio in full, although, as Helene says, the English side does not show it yet. The updating is overdue for several weeks now.

http://www.bolshoi.ru/persons/ballet/2881/

Her husband, Kamil Yangurazov, has been employed in the Actors/Extras ensemble of the Bolshoi Opera.

What's strange is that her name used to be listed next to her pic on the English version but it was not a link (so no bio) but now her name isn't even listed. Now just her pic. That is so weird. She seems to have a lot of bad luck.

The English side of the Bolshoi site is woefully out of date. Some prinicpals haven't had their bios updated for five years or longer, so I'm not surprised that a recent recruit doesn't have a functioning page.

I am not so surprised at the lack of a bio, but I am surprised that the name was there and now it is not. Someone had to take the name off. And now there is a pic with no name.

Yulia makes her debut this week, dancing two nights in succession in Russian Seasons, but it appears she has decided to dance from now on under her husband's name: http://www.bolshoi.ru/persons/ballet/2881/. An odd choice given she does have a certain following under her maiden name?

I was delighed to hear this news about her Bolshoi debut and would enjoy a chance to see her in Ratmansky's ballet. As for taking her husband's name--maybe it's a personal choice, and maybe she would like to get a bit of distance from all the controversy surrounding her earlier career. I would have no trouble believing either explanation.

Yulia will dance the Hungarian Bride in Swan Lake on 22nd November.

The perfect role for her. I can see her developing into a fine soloist in character or 'national' dances.

I've seen both her Hungarian Dance and O/O in the MT production. She impressed me very much in Hungarian lead in Toronto. Not at all as O/O in London...a performance most memorable for Xander Parish's Siegfried. Yangurazova (Stepanova) is too mannered and of imperfect proportions for classical leads, for my taste. Her big hands, noble chest, aloof aristocratic face, etc, look perfect in Peripa-style character dances. I bet she'll be fabulous in the Grigorovich Arabian dance (Nutcracker). Different strokes for different folks. :)

It appears that in the end Yulia only danced once in Russian Seasons and it was the girl in green; not yellow/white and not dark red! She has posted a picture to her instagram.
