"Bolshoi Ballet"
   Did anyone see the Bolshoi during their stay at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC? I saw their final performance, La Bayadere yesterday.
Anna Antonicheva as Nickia, was wonderful, she is such an increbibly light dancer, so expressive and precise.
The corps de ballet executed perfectly, spacing and timing were right on, especially in the Shades act.
However, I was a little unhappy with the other dancers. Most were good, but looked a bit like they were just going through the motions. Maybe because it was their last performance, but it was disappointing.
The crowd loved the Golden idol, Denis Medvedev, who was very athletic but not particularly artistic.
I'd love to hear from anyone else who saw this run of the Bolshoi.
