  5. Theatre screening at Pushkin House, 5a Bloomsbury Square, London, WC1A 2TA "THE KARAMAZOV BROTHERS" By Eifman Ballet (recorded at the stage of the Bolshoi Theatre) Sunday, 10 November 2019, 3:15 pm 4:45 pm The Brothers Karamazov novel is the epitome of Fyodor Dostoevsky’s creative work, the acme of the philosophic investigation carried out by this colossal and restless mind throughout his life. World renowned choreographer Boris Eifman offers a remarkable vision of the core ideas within the novel, expanding upon them though body language as a way of exploring the origins of the moral devastation of the Karamazovs; creating through choreographic art an equivalent of what Dostoyevsky investigated so masterfully in his book, the excruciating burden of destructive passions and evil heredity. https://www.pushkinhouse.org/events/2019/11/10/screening-the-brothers-karamazov-eifman-ballet "ANNA KARENINA" By Moscow Operetta Theatre Sunday, 16 February 2020, 3:00 pm 5:30 pm An encore screening of the musical “Anna Karenina", a spectacular, breathtaking, emotional, high-tech production based on the masterpiece by Leo Tolstoy. https://www.pushkinhouse.org/events/2019/1/20/premier-screening-anna-karenina-moscow-operetta-theatre-cmrpp-3fhrs

  7. Violetta Prokhorova joined the Sadler’s Wells Ballet (later the Royal Ballet) under her maiden name but Ninette de Valois insisted on her changing it to her married surname Elvin. https://www.google.com/search?q=violetta+prokhorova+elvin&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=3c_V_ghqik-LFM%3A%2CMSVW2Qw-pLjOeM%2C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kSuRHttLwEuYVdmtXQPw1q8cSWSJQ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjkttzo7aXkAhVgRBUIHSFUDMcQ9QEwAHoECAkQBg#imgrc=3c_V_ghqik-LFM:&vet=1
  8. From Osipova’s interview: “I have recently been pondering over who else I would love to play, and it occurred to me that I would enjoy dancing Mary Poppins! After all, there are very few children’s plays staged these days. I thought of my favourite Mary Poppins film with Natalia Andreichenko /in a Russian version - A./, and became very enthusiastic about the idea. This could be a fantastic staged play or a ballet for children.” https://www.russianartandculture.com/natalia-osipova-part-ii-so-while-i-am-carried-away-by-dancing-i-must-give-myself-to-it/
  9. I agree with you, Shade. We can judge and appreciate other dancers for their own qualities. We enjoy performances of new musicians although they might not play like Paganini or Rachmaninoff. We keep buying and reading and enjoying new books although they don’t match such central works of world literature as “War and Peace” or “Hamlet”. For those who missed Don Q. in 2011 — excerpts with Osipova, Vasiliev, Savin, also with Rossinant and Donkey (recorded in Moscow). I can not stop watching it. The performance in London was even better than this.
  10. Eugenia Obraztsova continues dancing with the Bolshoi. In 2019, she had two new roles: Hermione in “The Winter’s Tale” and Amoureux in "Gaîté Parisienne" by Béjart. She also recently played the leading role in the new feature film “THE FRENCHMAN”: https://kinotavr.ru/en/films/701

  12. When Mariinsky was at the Lowry, Vaziev let one corps de ballet member made her debut in the role of Odette-Odile - her name was Victoria Tereshkina. In Cardiff, as I remember Obraztsova appeared as Juliet in the Lavrovsky's version.
  13. Mukhamedov also danced with Natalia Bessmertnova. Her tragic Phrygia is remaining as an iconic image for the following interpreters of this role. She was swift and fearless in high lifts and her cantilena adagio dancing was seamless. The lamentation scene was flowing like an epic poem. Unforgettable! https://ok.ru/video/1142712830608
