  1. I'm not in general a Zakharova fan, but I much prefered her in this than in the Bolshoi production. She seemed to act it or maybe even live it a bit more than the Bolshoi performance. I noticed this as well. I saw Perren on I think its Bolero last week with her partner and had quite a lot of her body on show and she looks lovely with a nicely proportioned body and not bones trying to make a bid for freedom from her body. And in this production I noticed it seemed to be something a lot of them have going on there at the Mikhailovsky, I hope it long continues. I admit to not having seem many Sleeping Beauties in my time as a ballet fan, its not something that has ever really drawn me in as something I'm willing to pay for, so is it common for a man to be Carabosse and for it to be played so uncampy? The main bulk of my knowledge of this kind of thing has always been the Dudinskaya version in the Sleeping Beauty with Soloviev/Sizova and the men playing the ugly sisters in Cinderella.
  2. I wasn't able to watch all of it, but I really enjoyed it all. It was different from what I was expecting, more traditional stuff in there than I imagined but I enjoyed it very much. I loved Caraboose, and loved his costume. I really ejoyed the sets I thought the more minimal look worked well and I love the sets especially the bed and the oval frame at the end. I much prefer minimal sets and less flooding of the stage with dancers it gives me time to actually see whats going on rather than have my attention diverted to so many different areas at one. I didn't register too much change in era's but that partly may have been because I had to nip away during that moments so may have missed a bit. I wish Perren had been in it instead because I much prefer her to Sveta, and because she's THE Mikh prima in my eyes From what I've seen on the Mikhailovsky Livejournal videos she was wonderful and all the rehearal and behind the scenes stuff was really good fun to watch to see it all taking shape.

    Nadezhda Pavlova

    I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me as to the career of Nadezhda Pavlova. I know about the Moscow International Competition from 1973, but know little about what happened to her afterwards. I know she studied at Perm and went into the Bolshoi, and that she married Gordeev, but know very little else. I've seen clips of her on YouTube, and she seems to have those hyper extensions that people love now, but hers seem to be much more under control and not used all the time simply because she can like currently. Did she stay married to Gordeev? Is she still involved in ballet? What was her career like? Thank You in advance for any answers.
