I’m having to do almost an archaeological dig to get any information about the old ABT school, so in the meantime, enjoy this video of Evgenia Obraztsova rehearsing the role of Nikia in La Bayadere. Apparently she debuts in the role later this month.

    True artistry! I can’t believe the Mariinsky never made her a prima. The Bolshoi gained an amazing artist!

    From the looks of it, the death scene is going to be particularly poignant. I do hope someone makes a video. She is on her way to becoming one of the greats.

    Beautiful! The control at 1:40 makes it almost seem like it’s in slow motion!

      Yes, and she made one or two gestures in the death scene that brought tears to my eyes. She’s amazing.
