  4. In an interview with Barbara Newman in "Striking A Balance", Antoinette Sibley recalled how in 1956, as a new member of the Royal Ballet corps, she went with the rest of the company to watch the visiting Boshoi Ballet at Covent Garden in a rehearsal of "Romeo and Juliet". She noticed a middle-aged woman in the stalls, without make-up, wrapping herself in a coat: "This little gray-haired person all covered in woolies came up onstage from the stalls, and started pointing to things. We thought, Oh, she’s obviously the ballet mistress….and this little old woman with the gray hair went up to the balcony onstage and took off the woolies and was sixteen years old. Just like that in front of us. No makeup, no costume. It was a miracle in front of our very eyes… I have never seen a similar reincarnation in my life.” The “little gray-haired person” whom Sibley observed was the great Galina Ulanova, who was almost 47 at that time...

  13. Tributes are pouring in from colleagues saddened by the death of Vladimir Nikonov who was universally loved as a dancer, a teacher and a person. Alexei Ratmansky: Sad news from Moscow: Vladimir NIKONOV, beloved Bolshoi dancer and teacher passed away this morning. He was a true gentleman and a great professional. I will always remember his support and his kind heart. RIP dear Vladimir Leonidovich Alexei Ratmansky: When I asked Baryshnikov who was the dancer he admired the most among his colleagues in Russia, Misha said: Nikonov! Vladimir Leonidovich was very pleased to hear that. Here are too films of him dancing, one from 1965 (Class-concert) and the other from 1971 (Blue bird). Hard to believe he is gone. Just last November we worked together on Giselle at the Bolshoi. Such a decent, courteous and benevolent man. https://www.facebook.com/alexei.ratmansky?redirect=false And his latest very talented charge - David Motta Soares - on his Instagram. davidmottasoares: There is no word to express the loss of a beloved person... my mentor my friend my everything, who I’m as a dancer as a person it’s all because every morning all day long he was ready to teach me something new. To be never forgotten 🖤
  14. The famous ballet teacher, People’s Artist of Russia, Vladimir Nikonov has dies yesterday in Moscow at the age of 83. It was known on August 3 that he was hospitalized with pneumonia. He was a soloist of the Bolshoi Ballet from 1957 to 1978, and then taught at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy. Since 1978 he has been a teacher-coach at the Bolshoi. Among his pupils are dozens of famous artists, including Viktor Barykin, Vladimir Derevyanko, Valery Anisimov, Yuri Posokhov, Vadim Pisarev, Alexander Vetrov, Vladimir Neporozhny, Denis Matvienko, Alexander Volchkov, David Motta Soares… His son, Leonid Nikonov, was also a soloist at Bolshoi and now is a ballet teacher at Academia Teatro alla Scala. https://www.en24news.com/2020/08/former-soloist-of-the-bolshoi-ballet-dies-in-moscow-after-pneumonia.html
  15. In some forums, Jeannette, this is acceptable when they have the topic 'Im Memoriam'. However, since this topic was about the dear Nikolai Borisovich, perhaps, it can be split after Amelia's post on 25 July. The next one, 'In Memoriam' can start with Amelia's post Posted Tuesday at 22:57.
