The 36 new Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad projects announced today include: Passion of Russia starring famed ballerina Uliana Lopatkina in her Canadian debut and viola master Yuri Bashmet in an evening marrying music and ballet from the Host Nation of the 2014 Winter Games, a soulful double-bill of R&B crooners Raphael Saadiq and India.Arie, as well as Phoenix, an alternative rock outfit from France with early links to Daft Punk. For those more interested in seeing the riskier side of show business, STREB’s dancers will perform acrobatic and show-stopping jumps, falls and live action dance stunts using found materials and bizarre contraptions in Raw.

It is wonderful that Lopotkina will dance in Canada however it is not her debut in that country. It was either 1996 or 1997 that she performed in a Gala produced by Nadia Tencer. Sometimes marketing departments can make mistakes.

Oh wow - thanks VRS for pointing out that mistake. You're right, that wouldn't be a debut then, would it? :wink: Still, that's a long stretch of absence for the Canadians.

(Maybe ... is it her *Vancouver* debut??)

I often wish that jets like the Concord were more widespread so we could all just hop on and go anywhere in much shorter periods of time! :-)
