Wow. Everyone looks fantastic! Tereshkina and Sarafanov in the La Bayadere PdD are incredible.
How nice to see Yana Selina featured! She became one of Haglund's favorites during the Mariinsky's last visit to NY City Center in which she gave the most magical performances in Le Spectre de la Rose.
These Paquita costumes are gorgeous. Kondaurova in blue - oh my!
Alina Somova is doing quite well, indeed, like she maybe spent a little time in Marine Corps Ballet Boot Camp. Very cleaned up. Fouettes - no, нет, non pas encore. But all in all, what a pleasant surprise!
The dancers are drinking on stage with Gergiev?! What Haglund wouldn't give to clink a glass with him.
Happy New Year to everyone! [clink, clink]
