Haven’t felt very inspired lately, so sorry for the quiet. I did, as I periodically do, go to the websites of some major companies just to see who has been promoted, etc. On the Bolshoi’s website I found a whole bunch of photos of primas, apparently new, and apparently shot by the same photographer. They all made the primas in question look like they were at least my age (I’m pretty damn old). Not that that’s a bad thing, except that professional ballet, especially at the elite level, is a young woman’s game. While I’m at it, I have to mention that most of the Bolshoi’s primas are pretty women, and these photos make them look drop-dead plain on top of well past retirement age. Take a look:
See if you can pick out which photos I’m talking about. Just for a giggle.
