I can count the number of times I have seen Lopatkina on one hand and to say that I am very much looking forward to this program--in which she is drawing from a varied repertory--would be a decided understatement. The presence of several other very fine dancers on the program is more than icing on the cake.

Alas, it's wee-bit touch-and-go as to whether or not I can make it, but I have a ticket, have set the travel plans in motion, and altogether plan to do my utmost to be there!

I did make it for the final program which I thought was wonderful in many ways--first and foremost for the range we saw from Lopatkina: joy, despair, desire, otherworldliness; comedy, villainy, tragedy. Really pleased I had the privilege to be there. She is also extraordinary in the complete seamlessness of her dancing in each separate piece. And in the complete way she inhabits each one.

But also what wonderful dancers Lopatkina brought with her. Obviously she has great rapport with Yermakov -- but the other men were all excellent, dancing with freedom and intensity. Shirinkina was lovely in Fountain of Bachisarai especially and I could not get over how joyful and free Martynyuk was in the adagio from Shurale. I'm not sure excerpts always successfully honor choreography -- but this program was very pleasurable.

Drew likewise I really enjoyed reading your impressions. Yes Ermakov and Lopatkina are a good pair (size-wise, chemistry-wise) on stage. I also particularly love Martynyuk, she is such a lovely dancer. I do wish the program had been done elsewhere in the US as well but at least New Yorkers got a chance to see some spectacular dancing!
