A little gem from 3 months ago from our DonQ with Maria Kochetkova (@balletrusse) in Moscow at the Kremlin Palace (@statekremlinpalace)...

About to dance my 4th of 5 shows of our Nutcracker here with the @staatsballettberlin at the @deutscheoperberlin! Dancing alongside our young @yuriaisaka ! Here a little tidbit from my last one a couple of days ago... wait for the end ;) Thanks for filming, @yokocallegari

Anna Ol (@anna.ol_ballet) and yours truly in Alexei Ratmansky‘s “La Bayadère“ with @staatsballettberlin. Next shows are December 26th & 28th at the @staatsoperberlin . Hope to see you there! Photo by @yanrevazov

It’s Nutcracker time! Dancing my first show of the Medvedev/Burlaka version (version nr. 5 in my career) here with the @staatsballettberlin for the first time alongside our 18-year old Yuria Isaka (@yuriaisaka)... I know you are jealous of:
1. my purple tunic,
2. my two pearl necklaces,
3. my huge feathers on my head,
4. my blue boots with red tassles,
5. my feather-weight championship boxing belt,
6. and my red tights with golden ornaments which I unfortunately haven’t put on... Next shows are Nov 30, Dec 3, 7, 14 (!) at the @deutscheoperberlin! See you then!

About to perform here in Geneve, Switzerland at the Jewels of “Russian Ballet” at the Theatre de Leman! Dancing Don Quixote Pas de Deux alongside Maia Makhateli (@maiamakhateli) and Les Bourgeois (what surprise X-) )! Photos from Mexico by the great @carlosquezadaphotographer !

And here the same variation of Solor onstage from last Saturday. If you pay close attention, my necklace came undone and was lashing onto my face during the double-tours towards the end of the variation. Annoying AF. Thanks to @yokocallegari for the video :)

My first show of Solor in Alexei Ratmansky’s reconstruction of “La Bayadère” is tonight! Wish me luck! (for more current posts of the show look at my IG stories tonight...)

Getting ready for our Bayadere reconstruction by Alexei Ratmansky here in Berlin with the @staatsballettberlin! Here a little clip from my show 12 (!) years ago in Lithuania... how time flies! My shows are Nov 10th, Dec 26th & 28th! See you there!

Happy World Ballet Day, everyone. Photo: yours truly at the age of 3, I think.

And so it went with @balletrusse in Moscow at the @statekremlinpalace with @kremlinballet ... funny how after a show in Russia one can find basically the whole performance online... here a best-of compilation from the show... credits: 1,4,5,6) @_jk_art_ 2,7) @lapersonnemag 3) @fatox511 8) @balletrusse

Dancing Don Quixote at the Kremlin State Palace (@statekremlinpalace) tomorrow night here in Moscow alongside Maria Kochetkova (@balletrusse)... here a video clip from dancing DonQ 8 years (!) ago with Tokyo Ballet (@tokyoballet_official) and NBS (@nbs_japan). How time flies...
