Maya Dumchenko


Recommended Posts

I'm curious as to what has become of her. The few available videos are very beautiful, and previous reports of her dancing praise her very well, but I have not seen her name on cast lists when the Kirov tours. Does she perform more in St. Petersburg? Is she still with the Kirov? What happened to her?

She is still there allright. Maya Dumchenko is one of the many sad examples of artistic neglect at the Mariinsky. The usual pattern: first they push you, then they dump you. She was gradually left out of major tours, premieres etc. On top of that she was injured for a long time and made some personal decisions which in my view haven't improved her situation in the company. But yes, occasionally, you can still catch her in a St. Petersburg performance.
