Vaganova-Kirov-Mariinsky fans and film collectors may be interested to know that the Japanese Shinshokan company recently released a series of DVDs with Vaganova Academy graduation-performances of the early 2000s. One of these (the June 2002 graduation) includes Yevgenia Obraztsova starring in the ballroom act of the Sergeyev version of Cinderella. Another DVD is of a spring 2004 performance of Vainonen's Nutcracker. A lot of today's young stars can be spotted in these DVDs, including Somova, Novikova, Schklyarov, A. Sergeyev, etc.

The DVDs can be purchased via the Shinshokan or Fairy Shop websites. Alas, they're not available via amazon.com.jp, which is the easiest option for purchasing Japanese DVDs by English speakers.

p.s. Of course, a code-free/all-regions DVD player is necessary for anyone who doesn't live in Japan. Hopefully some of these DVDs will eventually make it to European, American and other markets.
