Bolshoi Gala at Aspendos (Turkey)

Recommended Posts

Has anybody found an actual program for the Bolshoi Gala at the Aspendos theatre in Turkey last night?  The Bolshoi site's description doesn't seem to match the Instagram photos of the event. Thanks.

Group photo following Aspendos gala. As best I can tell, left to right: Chapkina as dying swan, Stepanova as Kitri, maybe Skvortsov as Basil, then Zhiganshina and unknown from SB?, then Khoklova/Belyakov as Solor/Gamzatti?, then there is Maria Vinogradova in the red dress as Diana and a bare chested guy as Acteon, then David Soares sitting on the floor in the middle in Coppelia costume, his partner Margarita Shrainer behind him, and to her right somebody in Russian bride costume and then Shipulina as Mekhmene Banu.

There was also Instragram footage of Chopiniana with Zhiganshina and Skvortsov, Talisman with Vinogradova and Soares, Raymonda with Chapkina and Gerashchenko and Flames of Paris with Shrainer and Pugachev, which was exactly the program advertised.

Shipulina did not travel to Turkey. She was at her husband's music festival in Siberia.

Thanks for the correction. The photo is too small and blurry to clearly identify the dancers.

Thank you all for providing the proper identifications. It strikes me that some of these performances may presage debuts in the coming season.  Belyakov/Khoklova in Corsaire, Marchenkova in Legend of Love, Chapkina in Raymonda , Zhiganshina in La Sylphide (Chopiniana), Stepanova in DQ. Or not. 😉
