Jury deliberations in the trial of Viktor Kabaniaev begin next week.

Quote

But next week, 56-year-old Viktor Kabaniaev could find himself facing a long prison term instead of a dance stage or studio if a jury convicts him of 14 counts of molesting and raping two young former students.

A review of the Imperial Russian Ballet in "Swan Lake" by Sarah Navin for Bachtrack.

Quote

Lina Seveliova has been the company’s Principal Dancer since 2012 and was an absolute stand-out as Swan Princess Odette. There was a divine moment in the pas de deux with Prince Siegfried where her developpé froze in the air, before she lifted her leg even higher in a showcase of remarkable strength, then collapsed backward into her prince’s arms in a beautiful backbend. She also delivered more than thirty continuous fouettées and razor-sharp quadruple chaînés at remarkable speed. Seveliova’s biggest credits though were her stunning grace and vulnerability, shifting to a more seductive and deceptive persona as Odile. At every stage, she was perfection. Odile's black tiara bejewelled with rainbow gemstones was the most exquisite costume-piece.
