  1. And he also choreographs for famed figure skaters such as Evgeny Plushenko and Alexei Yagudin. Especially Plushenko's Tribute to Nijinsky was a very popular program. I have not seen the full Smekalov Paquita so I cannot comment on that but Smekalov's The Bronze Horseman is an epic work worth seeing. At least Smekalov is not an unknown choreographer.
  2. Sorry I am terribly late in noticing this topic one year old, but I saw this performance. it is by NBA Ballet Company, and here is the flyer for the performance http://www.nbaballet.org/performance/2012/1202_Les_Millions_dArlequin.pdf it lists as Evgenia Obrastsova and Alexei Timofeyev as guests but Obrastsova cancelled because of injury and Ekaterina Osmolkina replaced her in the performance, so I think it is Osmolkina here. (I saw the performance) Alexander Mishutin is a former soloist at Stanislavsky Music Theatre and he also reconstructed Awaking of Flora for a Japanese company.
  3.
