Well this is sort of cute March 28, 2013

It is a very strange life that a ballerina leads, after all.

BTW during my absence there was yet another bleat from a former Bolshoi/Maryinsky ballerina.  She has said the same before when she needed attention: the Bolshoi corps is little better than a brothel for rich corporate types who might be tempted to donate money to the Bolshoi.  I won’t give this ex-ballerina’s name because I vowed not to a while back.  Let’s just say she wears a megaton of makeup and has lousy feet, among other things.

Somehow this was all tied into the acid attack on Filin, but I don’t remember how.

Now, we were talking about strange lives, weren’t we…

    Off topic, but just stopping by to leave a couple of Evgenia Obraztsova links, as I have done before. Hope you don’t mind!

    These videos show Genia in Ratmansky’s Cinderella, a signature role for her at the Mariinsky. Her musicality, use of rubato, sense of humor, and intrinsic affinity for the choreography are on display and a joy to behold.
