  1. Elizaveta Kokoreva seems to be making big strides: Swanhilda debut on December 11th.
  2. Casting is up. Giselle will be danced by Smirnova on the 21st and 23rd with Belyakov as Albrecht. Krysanova and Ovcharenko on the 22nd & 24th. Nikulina and Tissi on the matinee on the 23rd. The men dancing Hans are: Biktimirov, Dorokhov, Savichev. Bathilde: Meskova, Kobakhidze, Balukova. Two Wilis: Denisova & Zhiganshina, Turazashvili & Vlashinets, Bochkova & Skvortsova. Myrthas are casted, however the dates they're performing have not been assigned: Shipulina, Kovalyova, Fyodorova, and Vlashinets. With only five shows, and four Myrthas, based on
  3. I sure hope so! I do like Iliushkina. I think she has potential and I want her to do well! I of course have my worries, but only time will tell.
  4. It's definitely going to be interesting-- she's never had to carry a full-length ballet. She's done Lilac Fairy, which is probably the closest, but still not Odette-Odile. We also have yet to see her in a role with that much acting, to that degree. And, of course, there's the whole Odile thing. But, of course, without giving dancers opportunities, we wouldn't have some of the stars we have today. However, I think this has the potential to be a highlight of Mariinsky's season.
  5. Ah! Thank you so much for keeping me updated-- Mariinsky's Shade Scene is an utter dream, I saw it a few years ago when they brought it to DC. What a delight to hear it's all going well this go round!
  6. I quite enjoyed it! It had been a while since I'd seen Mariinsky because I missed Corsaire in April. However, I do agree that there wasn't much meat in the plot. It was difficult to follow, even already knowing the plot before hand. I stand with my previous sentiments about Khoreva-- stunning technique, but no stage presence and can't really act or play a character other than smiling. And her shoes were distracting. She has such beautiful arches but those shoes make her seem like she's barely pointing her foot, and for the first act at least, were tanned too light for her legs, and it cu
  7. Very curious as to who will be doing the Trio of Shades-- wish that casting got announced.
  8. Seeing the sunday show and I am quite worried about her inability to emote.
  9. No you're fine! Weird that it didn't show up, that topic is one of the first open topics on the Kirov-Mariinsky page.
  10. Just a note, we already have a topic for Paquita at the Kennedy Center. Seeing it sunday, I am quite excited. Paquita is a test of technique for every dancer, and it will be interesting to see how the newer Mariinsky dancers (i.e the friends of Paquita: Nagahisa, Borodulina, Ionova, Nuikina, Khiteeva, Illiushkina, etc) do.
  11. I loved reading this! Will be seeing this cast on Sunday (except minus Tereshkina, unfortunately) and I am very excited to see Borodulina and now Ionova-- she does seem like she'd glisten in that variation. I saw Nagahisa as the third shade when Mariinsky came in 2017 with Bayadere, it will be interesting to see how she's grown.
  12. Yekaterina Petrova appears to be out. The casting isn't clear but I would assume she's been replaced by Shamala Guseinova: Paquita’s Friends: Anastasia Lukina, Alexandra Khiteeva, Yekaterina Petrova, Yana SelinaGrand Pas Variations (Act III)1. by Anna Pavlova in the ballet King Candaules: Anastasia Lukina2. Le Corsaire: Alexandra Khiteeva3. by Alexandra Shaposhnikova in the ballet Paquita: Shamala Guseinova 4. by Maria Gorshenkova in the ballet King Candaules: Yana Selina5. From the ballet Camargo: Maria Shirinkina6. by Anna Johansson in the ballet Paquita: Maria Khoreva This
  13. Agree! The costumes are some of the prettiest I've seen for a Sleeping Beauty and the sets are astounding.
  14. It appears for whatever reason they thought Nuykina was more deserving. I have a strong feeling that Masha won't be in the corps for much longer though.
