These two videos are something else that popped up when I went over to YouTube tonight. Apparently our friend Keenan has picked up another troll. I pity her. While there is something to be said about her performing the steps but not the role (a problem apparent in both videos), for crying out loud it’s not like she’s falling all over the place, either. There’s room to grow here. But sometimes, growth comes slowly. Certainly it’s not coming at the speed with which she’s being pushed.
Anyway, in this first video, the troll is comparing her to Olesya Novikova…who in my opinion is just all wrong for Kitri. Novikova is a delicate beauty who wants to float and be sweet; Kitri is just not that kind of role. However, she has the advantage of being on her home turf here and is relaxed and doing the best Kitri she can. I don’t think that can be said of Kampa’s Kitri at this point.
In the second video, the troll is comparing the Dryad Queens of Skorik, Kampa, and of all people the (now retired?) prima ballerina Yulia Makhalina. Of course, Makhalina blows the two girls away. No problem predicting that one.
Ah…well. Another day, another troll. Now back to my archaeological dig.
