Buddy, if you liked Ratmansky's Russian Seasons
for its kaleidoscope of colours (literally & figuratively), then I suspect that you'll LOVE Concerto DSCH
, in which a group of brilliant technical dancers (with a corps of men) is juxtaposed with a lyrical group (with a corps of women). The movement becomes the music and vice versa.
Frolova is one of Professor Ludmilla Kovaleva's many prodigies -- Vishneva being one of the first and most famous. She has a super-pretty face and eyes that 'pop out' at you. (In a line-up of 100 ladies, one would definitely pick her out for her bright facial features.) She tends to be cast in soubrette roles, maybe because she had the bad luck of being cast in Harlequinade
pdd at her graduation (June 2009) but she is so much more than a cutesy Columbine, as she seems to have proved in DC. Her physique and leanness are very similar to Terioshkina's. She has beautiful 'classic' positions & lines. She is not so short and only-perky to warrant casting her only as a soubrette.http://www.mariinsky.ru/en/company/ball ... n/frolova/
