Sergei Polunin as Prince Siegfried

Filmed only 10 days ago – Polunin dancing with Vera Sabantseva as Odette/Odile in Swan Lake, Novosibirsk State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre.

It’s rare to see such a recent performance of such a great artist as Polunin.

I’ll keep checking to see how long the video is still on YouTube.

    Thanks for this alert Valerie. It has made for some interesting holiday morning viewing. The documentary you wrote about in a previous post “Bolshoi Babylon” has also turned up on YouTube [as well as other places online]. While there doesn’t appear to be anything new in the way of details, it captures the alarming, not to say terrifying, atmospherics behind the scenes at the Bolshoi.

    I’ve been looking for Bolshoi Babylon on YouTube but so far have only see the trailer. I’ll have to go searching further – thanks for letting me know.
