Some nice insights into Svetlana Zakharova from Sunday.

 

" Success, though, has not eradicated a persistent grain of self-doubt. Even now, as she enters her 15th year as a professional dancer, Zakharova still regards herself, for the most part, as a student.

 

"When I'm in rehearsal I always feel like I'm a pupil -- and not at all a ballerina" she reveals.

 

Indeed, it's only in those comparatively brief moments on stage that Zakharova says she truly believes in herself as a performer.

"This transformation is unique," she explains. "Something from within takes place and you understand sometimes that human abilities are limitless. During the performance you do such things which you completely did not expect from yourself."

 

(I've more than once seen a remarkable 'Svetlana' on stage that I never would have anticipated.)

 

(And thanks, Bruce, for your optimistic "Reflections on Tamara Rojo’s first ENB season")

My goodness, Ian, what a lot of links! Thank you very much (and of course also to John for all the work he puts in).

 

(Edit: and I notice that the Li Cunxin article broadens out into a wider discussion of the relationship between artistic directors and boards, something which has been very much in the news in the ballet world recently).
