   Can you remember a performance, or a solo or pdd during a performance, when you came offstage and thought "That's it, that was the performance of a lifetime", when everything came together and worked perfectly and had that extra special something?

   What has become of Natalia Arkhipova with whom you danced Nutcracker at the Bolshoi? I really enjoyed both your performances and the production as a whole. What would you say are the main differences between the ballet environment in Russia and in England?

   Giselle is the defining role for a ballerina. What role would you say is the defining one for a male dancer?

Do you think that with so many new versions of ballet classics and even more new individual pieces, that ballet is becoming deconstructed? If so, is this a good thing?

Do you think ballet audiences of today tend to focus on the wrong things? As a dancer, what subtleties in your performance would you hope your audience would appreciate.

Which dancers (currently performing) do you admire, or which dancers have you not seen whom you would like to see?

   I wouldn't expect you to say who your perfect partner has been - but is there anyone you've never had the chance to dance with but wished you had?

   Is there one role, other than Ivan the Terrible in Russia, that you would like to dance one more time?

   Do you ever feel homesick for Russia? Do you keep abreast of events in Russia? What do you think of Vladimir Putin's policies relating to the arts in Russia?

   You mentioned "Valentino" as a project for 2002. Can you tell us anymore?

You have always invested your dance characters with a sense of soul. As a choreographer, if your choice was confined to two dancers, one with great technic but no ability to portray character, the other almost the exact opposite, which would you choose, and how would you work around it?

And finally, do you have any plans to keep us British fans up to date with your future career wherever it takes you. The world is now a very small place and it is sometimes easier to get to Europe than central London?

   Sorry, but checking the above for the first time I realise that my typing did not keep up with my thought process. The second question should read from the comma, "one with great technical ability, but no ability to portray character, the other almost the exact opposite, which would you choose, and how would you work around it?
Profuse apologies for any confusion?

   I like to hear some thoughts on ballet-education and vocational training nowadays.
And...what are the major differences with training in Russia ?
What's your personal thought on 'late starters'(at 14years) ?
Thanks !
