Débuts in The Nutcracker

On 26 April, the Leonid Yacobson Ballet Theatre welcomed three first-time performers during The Nutcracker show at the historical venue of the Mariinsky Theatre. The third act of this famous fantastical ballet, set to music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and staged by Vasili Vainonen, featured Elina Bednaya's début appearance in the Oriental Dance solo. The other two dancers, Elizaveta Korneyeva and Aydar Bikbulatov, made a début in the Waltz Quartet. We are very proud of our young dancers' début and wish them even more successful new performances in the future!
