I've never seen her in Swan Lake, but I read many reviews of her performance. Almost all critics praised her as phenomenal and glorious swan queen. She must be really something special and different from other ballerinas. I wish I had seen her last Thursday. But one thing has been disturbing me. Some critics say she was dancing in her own world paying little attention to the Prince. It is difficult for me to understand why she was so wonderful if it was true. Swan Lake is a love story and you should feel love between the Swan Queen and the Prince when you see this ballet. Did she have a different interpretation ? I'm sure a lot of people saw her last Thursday. I'd love to hear some thoughts.

I was at Thursday evening's performance, and for me she certainly didn't lack involvement with her Prince (Daniil Korsuntsev).Fear and uncertaintly were there (as required) but she was absolutely absorbed in her art.
The whole evening was memorable occasion and the ovations were richly deserved.
