I went to St Petersburg late April to see a few performances, Bolshoi's Taming, Mikhailovsky's La Fille Mal Gardee, Mariinsky's Ballet Russes program and Vishneva's 20th anniversary Giselle. All performances were enjoyable, but the one made me smile most was Fille at Mikhailovsky.

La Fille Mal Gardee is a new repertoire to the company so of course the dancers are not accustomed to the Ashton style but the performance was so cheerful, loved the chickens, and above all, Anastasia Soboleva and Victor Lebedev were both brilliant, so sunny and delightful, light as air leaps. Soboleva's strong pointe and musicality, Lebedev's virtuosity and beautiful classical technique. Both wonderful and their partnership was amazing, they are so good together and the audience were very enthusiastic. The performance made me cry with such happiness and joy filling the stage.

Here is the curtain call video I took.

Ekaterina Borchenko received the reward “Soul of the dance” in the nominee “Star” from the magazine “Ballet”. Our warmest congratulations and all the very best!

Very nice news--congratulations to Ekaterina Borchenko.

My impression from the Mikhailovsky website is, like that of Naomikage, that Irina Perren is once again dancing with the company--so her dismissal was, so to speak, reversed...I hope that's right.
