Image <P>The Bolshoi Theatre of Russia premiered C.Pugni's ballet "La Fille du Pharaon" this month. <BR>The dancers are not named. Come on you Bolshoi buffs - tell us who it is!<P>An interesting story about the financial problems that dog the Bolshoi. It makes one think when one reads that, 'Top Bolshoi dancers earn $70 monthly base salary, plus $210 per performance, while foreign companies pay big stars thousands of dollars a night.'<P>One begins to wonder why they haven't all gone off to wealthier climes, until you read, "This is my home," says Ananiashvili. "The Bolshoi gave me everything - the classical repertoire which I dance everywhere, the teachers who made me a ballerina." <P>Let's hopethat they survive this transition period in something like good shape. Last year's tour to London was probably their best of the 90's.<BR> <A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 19, 2000).]

I think the Bolshoi ballerina in the photo is Nina Ananiashvili, but I can't tell who the male dancer is.
