Altynai was featured in a video titled "Backstage at the Kirov" (I believe that's right) as a dancer being groomed for the role of Swan Queen for Swan Lake. She is a beautiful dancer, and the video is interesting showing classes rehearsals and performance alike of various dancers.

I agree with your enthusiasm maggie. I saw her for the first time in Mukhamedev's previous show at Sadler's Wells in 1999. She didn't have a lot to do in Petit's 'Bolero' - beautifully danced hockum. She was blissful in Tuckett's Louis Armstrong piece, but I may try to get a day ticket for one of her Kirov performances to see her really stretched. There won't be too many more chances.

But their worlds collided 10 years ago at the Royal Opera House. Mukhamedov had recently fled Russia to join the Royal Ballet and Asylmuratova was dancing with them on a guest contract. The pairing of the tiny, exquisite brunette and the balletic beefcake made perfect theatrical sense, but it is only very recently that they have capitalised on their extraordinary chemistry.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P> Here is <A HREF="http://www.telegraph.co.uk/et?ac=000148269364269&rtmo=fqawVv3s&atmo=99999999&pg=/et/00/8/5/badanc05.html" TARGET=_blank><I>Louise Levene's full interview</I></A> with this famous Russian pair in The Daily Telegraph.
