  1. Really bad news from St Petersburg yesterday, where Alexandrova was to have danced the Legend of Love with Lantratov tomorrow in the Mariinsky Festival: she got injured in a rehearsal and has returned to Moscow in a cast. No further details, but that really does not sound good! She announced this on her Instagram as follows (auto translated from Russian): "Dear viewers! Dear Petersburgers! I was looking forward to meeting you, with the Mariinsky Theater stage this Saturday. I was waiting for the opportunity to perform in my dear play “The Legend of Love”. For several days I had been rehearsing
  2. Some great little video extracts of Maria in Alexei Miroshnichenko's Cinderella in Perm at the weekend, dancing with Pavel Savin: https://www.instagram.com/offamorkoffa/p/Btt70rVgTdR/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=3trpzmvnfv9w&fbclid=IwAR0KzUU0PsSJXcqiR0YTOSWqc_KvwxKI-_0hrUrt0aXHQhKd0JHJOa-EDWo https://www.instagram.com/offamorkoffa/p/Btv35YGAgb-/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&igshid=aowh86z0j8j7&fbclid=IwAR0zb3NdvkXrF712fT8QzaT9SObz49wwLFZ2O2BxhEcWb2rtKj62o_YtNsw https://www.instagram.com/offamorkoffa/p/Btv_YXkA49P/?utm_source=ig_share_sheet&a
  3. Ah glad you managed to make it to Sleeping Beauty! I went to both of her first two and the second did seem more relaxed to me. She and Joseph Caley gelled beautifully, despite him being a little on the short side for her, and this was all the more admirable give that they apparently had very little time to prepare (Aaron Robison, who partnered her in the first one, was subsequently injured). I thought she really flowed with heavenly musicality in the vision scene, every inch the star, regal and transfigured. It was the first time I'd splashed out and sat near the front for one of her performan
  4. A little bit of Pharoah's Daughter from a gala in Gorizia in Italy on Saturday
  5. Interview here, dubbed into Italian, with Alexandrova and Lantratov, and some rehearsal clips, ahead of a gala in Rome last week. I have no idea what they say so if anyone who speaks Italian cares to translate that would be great There are also some lovely photos here: http://www.massimodanza.it/maria-alexandrova-e-vladislav-lantratov/
  6. There's a great interview in February's Dance Europe with Alexandrova, Osipova and Lantratov talking about interpreting the characters of Bayadere, in the context of their performances in Perm. All three are very eloquent and interesting. Copyright law prohibits me photographing it for you I guess, but I did particularly enjoy some of Alexandrova's insights. She's always fascinating and never dull! Some quotes: Q: Is one of these roles closer to you? MA: 'Neither one is close to me. They both combine some parts of me, but I can say 100% for certain that I would never have gone to a mona
  7. Alexandrova is dancing in this gala in Rome tonight and tomorrow with Lantratov. She says on Instagram that they're doing the Fonteyn/Nureyev PdD from Nureyev, and Pharoah's Daughter. https://www.auditorium.com/evento/les_etoiles-19178.html
  8. I assume you mean Ukrainian - he's from Kherson. From his name, and given his political opinions, I would think it likely that he's one of the many 'ethnically Russian' Ukrainians.
  9. Masha is back in Perm in February for a production of Cinderella by Alexey Miroshnichenko which premiered a couple of years ago. Looks to be set in the Soviet era, with the characters given different names...I know nothing about it! Maybe someone else does?! No Lantratov with her this time; she's partnered by Pavel Savin https://permopera.ru/playbills/playbill/84153/
  10. So, on December 14th the lucky people of Perm get to see a new production of Bayadere with Alexandrova as Gamzatti facing off against Osipova as Nikiya! That is going to be some confrontation scene!! Lantratov is Solor. Then on 16th Alexandrova plays Nikiya, with Lantratov again as Solor, and Perm principal Albina Rangulova as Gamzatti. Hoping some rehearsal videos might find their way onto Instagram.... Full information here: https://permopera.ru/playbills/playbill/82994/
  11. As a frequent Royal Ballet watcher, Gary Avis. He is the most wonderful Drosselmeyer to the extent that many people choose which nights to attend based on when he's on stage, rather than who the 'dancing' leads are. He makes even the most 'boring' character parts interesting; for example, I saw him as the Rajah in Bayadere the other night and one actually noticed him, as a real character with subtle emotions! He's a great Rothbart too, and Liam Scarlett's new Swan Lake really gives him something to get his teeth into. Widow Simone, Ugly Sisters, GM and the Gaolor in Manon, the Duchess in Wheel
  12. This thread has been quiet for a long time so I thought maybe I'd post some things Maria has been up to this week! She's periodically been appearing in a mime drama (or a 'drama without words' as it's described), called 'Caligula', playing Caligula's wife Caesonia, at the Moscow Provincial (Gubernskiy) Theatre. It seems like it's a mixture of theatre/mime and dance. More information and photos here: http://m-g-t.ru/performance/kaligula, and at the bottom some videos...Masha does fierce and strong women pretty well, as we know! They took it to St. Petersburg on Monday, pictures and a couple of
  13. Are you implying that Khoreva's social media presence has been 'manufactured' by someone other than her, or have I misread you? Many people her age are inseparable from their Instagram accounts....maybe she just enjoys it, and if she enjoys the attention then one can hardly blame her (though I totally share the concern that it might all be too much exposure too early).
  14. ...and she's hugely excited to be in New York; take a look at her Instagram story! https://www.instagram.com/marachok/?hl=en
  15. I must admit I haven't heard anything else about her being a soloist, but labels are probably largely irrelevant for the moment as she's had one of the highest profile starts to a career I've heard of in a long time! Her first role was Terpsichore in Apollo (with Parish, and the other star new company members Ionova and Nuykina), which she's done a few times and is currently in NYC dancing at the Balanchine gala at the City Center, and she's already done Paquita!! At this rate she'll be Medora for you, nevermind an Odalisque! I've only seen her on video but I do have to say she looks like the
