Since 2003, that is during the leadership of the Mariinsky ballet of Maharlika Vasieva, legendary ballet is in the repertoire of this troupe. And now “Studies” will finally appear and in Moscow. The premiere is scheduled for March 9 at the New stage.
Vaziev plans to work with former Prime Ministers and Big — Osipova and Vasiliev. “With Osipova, however, very difficult to negotiate. She created problems for me and at La Scala, — complained the new leader. — But in the future we will find a solution. And with Vasilyev I just spoke this morning — he will dance “Ivan the terrible”, for example.”
As for the invitation system ballet stars, here Mahar Vaziev was categorical: “I do not mind to invite the stars on some plays and festivals, but against it as a permanent phenomenon”.Related posts:
