<big>London is in for a surprise

- Interview with Maria Alexandrova

by Cassandra

July, 2004 -- London

On the opening night of the Bolshoi’s London season, Maria Alexandrova will dance the leading role of Kitri in “Don Quixote”, surprisingly she has only just been promoted to the status of principal dancer and when I met her recently to talk about her career, I quickly realised what an up-hill labour her progression to the top has been. Time and again she was passed over for roles for which someone in authority had considered her unsuitable. On the other hand choreographers have almost fallen over themselves to create leading roles for her (two of which she will dance in London) with Lacotte, Ratmansky, Eifman and Poklitaru all recognizing her unique gifts. Audiences simply adore her; read the comments here on Criticaldance about her performances in Paris earlier this year and you will discover just how easily she can captivate the public. At last it seems Alexandrova is to be accepted as the supreme artist she truly is and her stubborn struggle to assert herself is at an end as her enlightened new director acknowledges her blazing talent.

Declan Donnellan: Ballet boy

The Independent
July 25, 2004

He has made an indelible mark on British theatre. Yet it's the Russians who love Declan Donnellan the most, says Claire Wrathall. So much so, they've entrusted him with a 'Romeo and Juliet' for their beloved Bolshoi. There's one problem: he doesn't know the first thing about dance.
